Visit PĀTAKA Art + Museum, a lively hub of arts and culture sitting in the heart of Porirua City, one of the most multi-cultural cities in New Zealand.
PĀTAKA shows the very best in contemporary Maori, Pacific Island, New Zealand and international art. It also hosts many associated community events including artists' talks, workshops and a comprehensive education programme for schools.
With a range of spaces, including eight galleries, meeting rooms and a spacious atrium, PĀTAKA provides a place for the community to engage with and celebrate diverse cultures.
In addition the resident cafe, Kaizen, overlooks a traditional Japanese garden, and a carefully chosen range of art and craft works can be found in the gallery shop, Toi Store, which stocks something special to suit most budgets.
