Our work is diverse – we support many of New Zealand’s art, media, heritage and sports organisations; we also advise government on cultural matters and provide historical and heritage resources for everyone to access. We work to promote a confident and connected culture and to support more New Zealanders to connect with the culture and heritage of Aotearoa.

  • We have a leadership role across the cultural sector. We work with our funded agencies and partners to help shape national conversation about New Zealand’s culture and heritage.
  • We’re a Treaty partner. We work in partnership with Māori and are guided by the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi.
  • We’re a public sector agency. We work to deliver nationally significant programmes that speak to the heart of our national identity.
