ABOUT THE CORBAN ESTATE ARTS CENTRE


CORBAN ESTATE ARTS CENTRE


The Corban Estate Arts Centre (CEAC) is a unique arts precinct set in the grounds of the former Corban family, established in 1902 in Henderson, West Auckland. It is situated at the foot of the Waitakere ranges, only 20 minutes from Auckland’s CBD. Steeped in the rich history of its pioneering settlers, the estate can be explored in your own time during your visit or through one of our workshops or special arts events. We are proud to be able to provide our visitors with a genuine arts experience.

As well as providing an education environment for arts and culture, CEAC is also a working arts precinct with 19 artists using the studios on site as well as a number of arts organisations specialising in dance, theatre and Pacifica culture. Some of the artists are directly involved in our education programme and studio visits can be arranged on request.

CEAC’s facilities include exhibition galleries, a range of studios and spaces for arts activities, a relaxed friendly café and plenty of free parking.
