Colour the Night 2016

Colour the Night is happening on Thursday 14th July from 5.30-9pm in Rotorua’s CBD

What is it?

Colour the Night is a one night event for local arts and cultural groups and organisations to open their doors for a cross-promoted arts night out to bring the public into arts spaces and celebrate Rotorua’s rich variety of culture.

For one night we want to will be filling all participating places with art, music, dance, fun, laughter and food. It is a great chance for local arts and cultural groups and organisations to showcase what they are doing over winter. This event is also for locals and visitors to explore central Rotorua for a night through an artistic lens. There will be lots of things to see, new things to try and lots of people to meet.

The Rotorua Museum, the Blue Baths, the Rotorua Night Market, The Arts Village, The Art Space, the Rotorua Night Market and Rotorua Children’s Art House have all confirmed that their spaces will be open for the night. These spaces will not only show off what they are doing, but also host organisations, groups and individuals for the evening, whether it is artists, musicians, dancers or amazing cuisine.

Lots of individuals and groups will be showing their talents for the night AND the art, music and performance on the night will be FREE, so grab your friends, family, coat, hat and scarf and come along to check it out!
