Sasha Gibbs talks about the upcoming Te Ata Programme

“Arts festivals can stimulate a nation’s culture. Just as agriculture celebrates the planting and harvest, arts festivals enact the planting of new ideas and traditions, which, if tended, will grow into the cultures of the future.” 

The CoffeeBar Kid talks to Sasha Gibb - Principal Arts Producer of Te Ata. 

This is a festival within the Festival, brings together artists from Aotearoa and around the world in exchange with young New Zealanders who wish to take a bold, brave and active role in shaping the culture of the place where they live. Two weeks of ground-breaking creative development will culminate in a week of public performances and events hosted by Porirua City, which has one of the youngest populations in New Zealand.

Created with the community of Porirua and artists who include South African protest musician Neo Muyanga, US Youth Poet Laureate Kara Jackson, Der Faust prize-winner for dance Aloalii Tapu, 2019 New Zealand Arts Laureate Coco Solid aka Jessica Hansell, Grammy Award-winning opera singer Jonathan Lemalu, baritone Kawiti Waetford and the New Zealand Sinfonia for Hope Orchestra.
