Asians and the Arts  

 Asian Aucklanders and the Arts is a partnership research initiative by Creative New Zealand, ASB Community Trust and Auckland City Council.


Produced in May 2007

The qualitative research with Chinese, Indian, Korean and Japanese communities in the Auckland region aims to understand how Asian people engage with the arts. The findings presented in this report are an important first step in our journey to conect with and support those whose origins lie in the Asian regions.

ASB Community Trust will use the research to inform our programme development and help ensure that we can respond to the growing needs of the diverse communities that make up Auckland.

We also hope this research will provide other community funders with valuable insights into Asian communities and overcome barriers that stand in the way of their engagement with the arts.
