Artmakers Community Artists Trust is a community organisation, established in the early 1980s as an independent Charitable Trust. Our focus is on arts & creativity in its many forms. Based in Hamilton New Zealand, we have worked continuously in the community as facilitators of community arts projects and events, working in partnership with, amongst others, schools, health care facilities, social and community services groups, environment groups and the Hamilton City Council.
We are registered and accredited ( since 1993) as a Private Tertiary Education & Training Establishment recognised by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority under the Education Amendment Act1989 and are active in the development of skills and qualifications for our sector.
We are providers of education & training programmes and have delivered many successful projects and programmes over these years supported in part by donations and grants, as well as delivering employment creation, personal development, education & training programmes through contracts with the NZ government including the Department of Labour, Skill New Zealand and the Ministry of Youth Development.
