Bay of Islands Arts Festival UPSURGE 2021

It is with great disappointment that the Bay of Islands Arts Festival Trustees (BOIAFT) resolved to postpone the UPSURGE 2021 Arts Festival. The Bay of Islands region has been heavily affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and it is unfortunately not practicable to hold UPSURGE in early 2021, due to funding and the planning it involves.

The Trustees are extremely sad not to have the opportunity to deliver an Arts Festival next year, but will be working with funders, supporters and the phenomenal artistic talent from the Northern region as well as throughout Aotearoa, to present a fantastic UPSURGE Festival in April 2022.

It will be great to see you then!

Here’s a wee video of our UPSURGE 2019 festival to enjoy.
