The Fifth Annual Taranaki Arts Trail will be held on 9, 10 & 11 June 2018.

This is a annual event held throughout Taranaki where artists in their studios have an opportunity to host the public. This event is interesting, because it is a rare opportunity to meet artists in their own environment and to be able to talk one on one about the inspiration and processes which led to the artworks.

The Taranaki Arts Trail is a voluntary group who seeks to promote art in our community, thereby attracting visitors and creating business opportunities. The Taranaki Arts Trail produces over 7,000 comprehensive brochures and maps for distribution and has an active Facebook following.
The marketing emphasis will be an online one and a new website structure has been created to attract more visitors to the event.
A goal within the next two years is to establish the resource in order to conduct a full BERL economic impact report to quantify the value of this event in the local community.

The 2014 and 2015 events were both highly successful and in 2015 attracted 77 participating artists and a total of 12,000 studio visits over the weekend. 2016, although wet, still managed a total of 9,800 studio visits.

This is a personal invitation to support the 2017 event either as a patron or as a business sponsor. In 2017 we seek to increase the levels of community participation to 15,000 studio visits and would like to offer the following opportunities:

Sponsorship Benefits:
