The New Zealand Festival is a curated Festival. Artists are invited to perform by the Festival’s Creative Director, Marnie Karmelita.

The programming of the Festival is an ongoing process. Marnie will spend part of each year travelling the world in search of artists and performances to bring to Wellington. She works with companies and individual performers to develop projects and programmes, and this work is often done years in advance.

If you think you or your company have an exciting proposal suitable for the New Zealand Festival or the Wellington Jazz Festival, please email or you can post information or invitations to:
