Akaroa & the Bays have a dynamic group of artists and creative people. Artists express their creativity in the Akaroa & the Bays community through local art exhibitions, performances, workshops and creative events. Boutique art and craft shops and galleries show off superb local works. Specialist shops offer a tempting variety of goods and those who enjoy walking will find charming lanes, colonial architecture and stunning views along the way. Akaroa is rich in Arts and Crafts with some exquisite local boutiques starting with a must see visit to the 'Little River Art Gallery' as you drive through Little River.
We are a community group that promote and encourage art in the community. We run Community arts Initiatives in Akaroa and are instrumental in offering a variety of opportunities for the encouragement of creativity within the community. Projects include ArtSpot, Workshops, Easter Eggstravaganza, Art Xpress, Poetry Day and other art related activities in our community.
The Akaroa Civic Trust has developed a database of all the historic buildings and sites in the Akaroa Historic Area. If you would like to find the location of the Cottage that used to be in your family way back or find the name of the person that build your family bach, the database is a great place to start. The database is fully searchable from the Akaroa Civic Trust website.
Come and have your Palm read in Akaroa! Experienced reader of over twenty years based specifically in Akaroa. Palm Reading is the ancient science of reading personality and individual traits through the shape, and lines on the hand. The future cannot be told as the lines especially are just a ‘reflection’ of the way we think, the patterns of neurons in the brain, or rivers of thought. This fascinating science can help to understand the way we individually react to the world around us, point out our strengths, and encourage us to work on our weak points.
