About this space

Our beautiful art space hall is part of Whare Toi. Nestled on the side of Maunga Takarunga (Mount Victoria), we have a strong attachment to the maunga, and benefit from the proximity to this calming and spiritual presence. The maunga are also a source of inspiration for all artists in all disciplines, reinforcing the nature of Papatuanuku in her form as maunga, as awakening the creative. Whare Toi is under the patronage of Depot Artspace whose mission is to 'create an environment that encourages creating.'

The main hall at Whare Toi is a light filled, open and flexible space. Views across the sparkling Waitemata Harbour back to the Auckland skyline in one direction, and the verdant grassy slopes of the maunga in the other - this is a setting that’s hard to beat for encouraging creativity, connection and inspiration. The room has beautiful wooden floors, white walls and light from windows on 3 walls and strip lighting on the ceiling.

Art Classes and workshops, drama groups, choirs, rehearsals, small performances, lectures, presentations, away days, seminars, planning sessions, meet ups and gatherings.
