Hello and welcome to Creative Mercury Bay, facilitating, fostering and celebrating the arts in our community.

Explore our upcoming events to find out more about our exciting creative programme. Discover what Mercury Bay’s other arts and culture organisations and tutors within our community have to offer, and how to contact them. Browse our professional directory to source local artists or technicians for your special event or gig. And please join us in celebrating Mercury Bay’s vibrant arts community and events.

Watch this space for development of the Coromandel Arts and Creative Industries Strategy - it's before council right at the moment.  Fingers crossed...

Please sign up to receive our e-newsletter so we can keep you up-to-date with all the detail of CMB's and other arts and culture organisations' current and forthcoming events.  

And CMB would love YOUR assistance at any level that you are able to give - five hours a year or five hours a week and anything in between.  We need casual volunteers to help out at our events - that's the five hours a year job!  Then we need a words person who can write our funding applications three or four times a year; and we need a marketing/communications person who can create and maintain a social media platform for CMB.  Please email Jan if you would like to join our joyful and creative little team at any of those levels.
