In its 25 colourful years Depot Artspace has remained constant in both its loyalty to the local community and responsiveness to an evolving, often volatile creative environment.
We employ the transformative capacity of the arts to engage, inspire and challenge the community. We are guided by the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi: Partnership, Participation and Protection.
The Depot philosophy of encouragement, support and inclusiveness has been its touchstone since opening 1996 and has been the basis on which the Depot has grown into a multi-disciplinary creative community, encompassing all art forms, supporting artists at many different levels and across all generations.
Depot Artspace is an open and inclusive creative community in Devonport, Auckland that encourages engagement in all art forms. Depot Artspace offers a variety of facilities, services and events that support the creative community including galleries, a professional development programme, publications, a recording studio and a design studio.
