Welcome to Māpura

Māpura Studios is a creative space located in central Auckland with satellite groups in other areas.

We offer inclusive, multi-modal art classes and art therapy programmes for people of all ages diversity and need, as well as the wider community. These include visual art, music, cartooning, dance, performance and therapy programmes.

We provide a professional service in person-centred visual arts learning, creative therapies, and arts practice – and maintain an extensive exhibition calendar for our artists.

Our studio is located in a pleasant, airy setting at Rocky Nook Bowls in Fowlds Park, St Lukes. There is easy and ample access for people in wheelchairs, as well as a carpark.

Māpura Studios is an independent organisation, administered by Panacea Arts Charitable Trust and funded by grants and programme fees.

My art is about my life. It is a good way to deal with stuff. making art is a way I can express ideas and concepts that have real meaning in my life.
