Upper Hutt City Council is seeking applications from interested members of the community for four positions on the Whirinaki Whare Taonga Trust.  

Four Trustee positions finish on 30 June 2022 and Upper Hutt City Council are seeking applications from interested members of the community to replace them. We’re looking for people who are well connected in the arts and/or heritage community who can bring fresh perspectives. 

We’re particularly keen to hear from people with previous governance experience, preferably with a finance, health and safety or legal background. The roles are for up to three years from the date of appointment. Positions are voluntary and Board meetings are held every six weeks. 

This is a unique opportunity to join a progressive charitable board of Trustees in the arts and philanthropy space and build support for artists.  

If you, or someone you know would like to apply, please send a covering letter with your CV outlining your governance experience and what skills you can offer, to the Director of Community Services, Upper Hutt City Council, Private Bag 907, Upper Hutt or by emailing

Applications close Friday 29 April at 5.00 pm.
