Mairangi Arts Centre,
An unique basket where knowledge of arts and culture are pursued.
Strands connect and bind all our people, just as
strands connect and bind art and culture to the health
and wellbeing of our community.

Te Herenga Waka o Orewa gifted this Hakatauāki / collaborative Māori proverb representing our collective approach towards working with other partnering organisations.

Catalyse collaborated with our local community to produce a Mairangi Bay Community Map that was recently launched connecting local organisations together through walking paths within our neighbourhood.
