The Creative Capital Arts Trust (CCAT) is an umbrella organisation which has been established in order to facilitate the delivery of key arts events in Wellington and create a reliable resource for the emerging arts sector in Wellington.
CCAT aims to provide a professional and sustainable body delivering fresh and vibrant arts events supported by a variety of funders and engaging a wide range of audiences, both locally and internationally. The initial mandate of the CCAT will be to sustain and build the Cuba St Carnival and Fringe Festivals, providing a solid structure on which these two events can flourish, while at the same time building capability to produce other arts and creative events as the organisation grows.
