AOTNZ names top regional arts touring awards for 2018

RATA – AOTNZ names top regional arts touring awards for 2018

Each year come February to November, artists travel around New Zealand in the distinctive Arts On Tour van, bringing talent to out of the way places. The artists love this opportunity to explore little known venues around the country, from Northland to Invercargill (and sometimes Stewart Island).

We asked the artists touring during 2018 to give their pick of the venues they visited.

Their choices:

Oamaru Opera House

Best overall venue (Top Gig) - Oamaru Opera House

- For hospitality, technical assistance, promotional and social media support, general vibe
Manaakitanga (Hospitality) Award - Onewhero Performing Arts Society

Best Theatre Venue – Oamaru Opera House

Best Music Venue – The Old Dairy Factory Norsewood

Best Individual Community Presenter – Jade Gillies of Gillies Creative, Invercargill

AOTNZ offers congratulations to the winning venues, and to Jade, and thanks all our venues for their continued support. Season’s greetings!
