Arts fo­cus

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Porirua City coun­cil­lors ap­proved the de­vel­op­ment of an arts and cul­ture pol­icy last week.

There are no costs in­volved as yet, apart from of­fi­cers’ time to de­velop it.

Fo­cus ar­eas, part­ner­ship op­por­tu­ni­ties, ex­pen­di­ture and reporting are among the key in­di­ca­tors for the pol­icy.

Cul­ture and re­cre­ation con­trib­utes $ 1.8 mil­lion to Porirua’s econ­omy ac­cord­ing to a ‘‘third sec­tor pro­file’’ con­ducted re­cently.

More than 40,000 people at­tend Fes­ti­val of the El­e­ments and Pataka at­tracts 160,000 vis­i­tors per year.
