The Pacifica Arts Centre is a home base for Pacific art, culture and community in West Auckland.
Established in the late 1980’s the centre’s vision is to develop and support Pacific arts and cultural projects, with a focus on Pacific heritage art practices.
The Pacifica Mamas and Papas are the centre’s founders and backbone, providing guidance and support to the Pacific collectives and individual artists that call the centre home.
The centre offers regular workshops and events year round. This includes workshops for the Arts Education for Schools Programme, in partnership with the Corban Estate Arts Centre team.
