New Waves: Meeting the growing hunger for Asian art in Aotearoa

Commissioned by the Asia New Zealand Foundation and written by Rosabel Tan, the New Waves report offers unique insight into New Zealand’s changing relations with and in Asia through the arts and how those relations are changing the nature of what is happening here in New Zealand.

For practitioners and programmers, this report sets out a comprehensive picture of the opportunities on offer in Asia, as well as recommendations for how those working in our arts sector can better serve this growing demand in New Zealand.
