Enjoy Contemporary Art Space is a non-profit organisation dedicated to developing contemporary art practice—and the audiences and discussion around contemporary art—through exhibitions, events, publishing, artist residencies and other activities.
Established in 2000, Enjoy is located in central Te Whanganui-a-Tara, Wellington at 211 Left Bank Arcade, off Cuba Street.
We create opportunities for learning and exchange around contemporary art in Aotearoa New Zealand, and advocate for its role in our society. Enjoy’s artistic programme prioritises artists, writers and curators who are early-career or interested in growing their practices in a supportive and challenging environment.
Governed by a board of trustees, our organisation strives to honour Te Tiriti o Waitangi through its strategic leadership and approach to arts participation.
Leading contemporary art practice for Aotearoa New Zealand
- To develop and deliver experimental art experiences
- To nurture, enable and challenge contemporary art practitioners
- To support, grow and extend audiences
- To contribute to a diverse art community
Enjoy delivers our Mission and Vision with the investment of our primary funders Creative New Zealand Arts Council Toi Aotearoa, with additional support from Wellington City Council, community funding and fundraising initiatives.
We would like to acknowledge Te Āti Awa/Taranaki ki Te Upoko o Te Ika and the neighbouring Ngāti Toa iwi who are the mana whenua of this region and rightful custodians of the land upon which we stand.
