Creative Capital Arts Trust (also known as CCAT) is a not-for-profit charitable organisation established in 2011 to support the creative life and cultural identity of New Zealand's capital city. We are professionally managed by a team of extraordinary arts administrators, seasoned festival producers, and emerging talents—led by chief executive Kim Bailey.


Our programmes include the annual New Zealand Fringe Festival, the free creative street festival CubaDupa and classical music crawl Classical on Cuba. Our organisation is dedicated to facilitating, enhancing, and developing cultural opportunities in Te Whangānui-a-Tara. Count on us to seek out and forge new collaborations and partnerships, and serve as a resource for all artists and creative possibilities in the region.


Our offices and teams are based at The Exchange, and the Trust is governed by a visionary board of civic leaders and creative people. Our door is always open to partnerships, collaborations, and community connections. If you have a project or idea to share—or are interested in supporting the work of Creative Capital Arts Trust—we would love to hear from you. Join us in expanding Wellington's creative horizons and growing new platforms for artists and audiences. Help us build a more vibrant, connected, expressive, and exciting capital!
