Performing Arts Charitable Trust is inspired by our local talent in the performing arts, the need for all to be be included no matter your disability or culture, and those who have financial restrictions but have a real passion and talent for the arts. Often these are factors which prevent our youth from accessing tuition and opportunities centered around the performing arts.
PACT was established under the name Lakes Charitable Trust in 2018 in Rotorua, NZ, by Rebecca & Quintin Brake. In 2019 Lakes Charitable Trust was granted Charitable status and was re-branded Performing Arts Charitable Trust (PACT) to help align with our current objectives. We endeavour to support the cultural development of the community to ensure performing arts can be accessed by everyone to flourish in our communities.
