Showcase of Creativity


A proud tradition of creativity on The Coromandel has been upheld and showcased with an innovative new website built to promote and capture the arts’ across the region.

 

www.creativecoromandel.co.nz launched this month with over 100 creative Coromandel people, places, events and opportunities listed on the site.  Listings are expected to double within the next few months.

The website has been a major project this year for Creative Coromandel - He Mana Toi Trust, a group formed in 2016 by the Thames-Coromandel District Council (TCDC).

 

The group was developed in consultation with The Coromandel arts’ community, responding to the need for a unified approach to promotion, advocacy and representation of the arts’ across the District.

The website highlights the abundance of creative talent, events, activities and opportunities throughout The Coromandel. Visitors can plan their trips to coincide with arts’ events, while local creatives now have an online hub that promotes and represents the region’s creative community.

 

The Coromandel comprises many small communities, with some artists and creative groups working in remote areas. Jan Wright, Chairperson of He Mana Toi Trust comments that the website now gives The Coromandel the potential to become a dynamic and progressive arts’ destination, consolidating creativity throughout every corner of the region.

 

The website aims to provide a rewarding online experience; for artists of all disciplines as well as all those with an interest in arts’ on The Coromandel.  www.creativecoromandel.co.nz is intended to be a central hub for local creativity and a useful resource for people visiting the area. A flow-on financial effect can be expected, not only to the people and places listed, but also to local business and tourism.

 

It is currently free to add a listing to the website.  Creative Coromandel encourages anyone interested in promoting an individual, organisation, location or event to make the most of this opportunity and upload their listing.
