Event description
20 artists. 20 chefs. 20 dinner parties across Aotearoa in May 2022. The Great New Zealand Arts Dinner Parties are back!

About this event

We invite you to celebrate the arts over fine food, beautiful wine and amazing kōrero with a dinner party at your place. It’s small, it’s unique and you’ll be part of one of only 20 Arts Foundation Te Tumu Toi dinner parties happening across the motu in May 2022.

Date: Thursday 19th May - Saturday 21st May 2022

Memorable trios from last year included:

  • Chef Yukio Ozeki from Azabu + host Anna Jackson + artist John Pule
  • Chef Jonny Schwass from Ilex + host Garth Gallaway + artists Sam Neill & Rachel House
  • Chefs Glen File & Josh Emett from Onslow + host Hamish Edgar + artist Simon O'Neill

This year, we're giving our hard-hit hospitality legends a leg-up, deepening our support in gratitude for their essential mahi (the price is higher, but we’re pouring more into our incredible creatives and chefs). All other funds will help to fuel The Arts Foundation Te Tumu Toi – enabling us to continue our mahi, boosting opportunities for artists and amplifying their impact.

Secure one of twenty $7,500 dinner parties with a $1,000 deposit. From there we’ll start the ball rolling, matching you with an artist and top chef of your choice!

If you have any questions or would like to chat about the process, email – we're here to help.
