What do we do?

The broker works with you to support you to bring your creative ideas and fully formed projects to the Whau public.

We start with a conversation about what it is you want to do and from there work out what support you need.

This support can vary from providing advice and assistance with council processes, connecting you with other individuals and groups in the Whau community, assisting with grant applications, to securing funding for your project during our annual funding round.

Getting in contact

You can reach out to Jody Yawa McMillan, your Whau Arts Broker, via email at, or through Facebook and Instagram.

“Community art projects weave together creativity, culture and collaboration in our neighborhoods. We’re forging spaces where every voice counts, celebrating our differences, and shaping our community collectively.” – Jody
