Arts & Culture – Enhance and increase participation in arts and creative leisure activities
Wellington Batucada is honoured to have been selected as one of the finalists in this year’s Wellington Airport Regional Community Awards for Wellington City – in the Arts & Culture section.
Our veteran agogo player RJ Henderson put together a compelling application for the Award, and we were absolutely delighted to hear that all his hard work had paid off and that we were one of the finalists.
The awards ceremony on July 27 was attended by RJ and our committee chairperson Lise Hutcheon.
The Winner in the Arts & Culture category was The Performance Arcade, and the Runner Up was Out Wellington Incorporated (Wellington Pride Festival I Tū whakahīhī e Te Whanganui-ā-Tara).
Compassion Soup Kitchen Wellington were honoured as Supreme Winner for their commitment to helping vulnerable people.
Congratulations to all the nominees and winners. We love Wellington!
