Toitoi’s vision is to be the most vibrant and significant arts, culture and events facility in New Zealand.
Toitoi – Hawke’s Bay Arts & Events Centre has a wide range of spaces on offer for events of any size. Located in Hastings CBD, Toitoi is situated for both convenience and accessibility.
With the historic Opera House at its heart, Toitoi offers a unique blend of awe-inspiring heritage architecture and modern technology. It truly is a venue unlike any other in Aotearoa.
Our focus on being a next generation venue means we provide diverse programmes which are accessible to a wide range of audiences. We are both a home and a host for our local and wider Aotearoa community, while also being thought leaders and enablers.
We are committed to honouring Te Tiriti o Waitangi and weave te ao Māori throughout our business. We strive to create new knowledge in our community which enhances cultural awareness, expression and understanding.
Toitoi is also a learning environment through which we facilitate employment pathways for our Hawke’s Bay community.
