BATS is more than the building, it's you. You - our artists, our creatives, our change makers. In fact you're not ours at all, but you are a huge part of the history of this iconic Aotearoa arts institution and we hope you'll be part of our future.

Nau mai, haere mai, piki mai - you are all welcome here.

We hope you'll find everything you need here - if not, please let us know how we can support you further.

Artists Index

This is a place where you can see people who have worked on past and present projects at BATS. It could also be a place to find new collaborators, mentors and friends to work with.

This is a work in progress! We're hoping to build a complex archive of all the people who have worked within these walls.

If you would like to create a profile that you can edit yourself please get in touch.
