The White Room Online is a place to find art and creative activities to do and use at home. It has been developed as response to the restrictions caused by COVID-19, so artists who cannot get to The White Room Creative Space, in person, can still have access to art and creative activities. The White Room Creative Space was developed in 2014 in response to a growing need to foster and develop the creative talent of people supported by SkillWise. With its own dedicated creative space, it has become an exciting and successful place where artists can explore and showcase their artistic potential. In 2021 The White Room received funding, through the Te Tahua Whakahaumaru Creative Arts Recovery and Employment (CARE) Fund from Manatū Taonga Ministry for Culture & Heritage as part of their response to the impact of COVID 19. The funding has enabled the development of an outreach programme and to extend the opening of The White Room Creative Space. This website was developed as a means to connect with people who cannot physically attend activities due to having to isolate because of the omicron variant. The White Room advocates for the artists inclusion in contemporary arts practice through supporting their art making, participation in exhibitions and other creative projects. Recently we have begun a new outreach programme, which aims to increase access to, and participation in, creative activities for groups of people in Ōtautahi who experience barriers to participation. If you have any questions or suggestions about any of the activities on this website please get in contact with us.
