Purpose & Structure

Charitable Purpose

The Art Deco Trust Incorporated is a guardian, a storyteller and an interpreter of some unique national treasures. We are the guardian of a collection of beautiful art deco buildings constructed after the 1931 Hawke’s Bay earthquake and fire. The Trust is a storyteller of courageous people who were able to imagine a different kind of city and adopt the energy and optimism of a modern art and design movement to create it. The Trust is also the interpreter of the spirit of Art Deco to contemporary audiences in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand and beyond. Guardian The Art Deco Trust came out of a group formed in 1985 to protect the unique 1930s buildings that for 50 years had been unrecognised, undervalued and were under threat of demolition. Our Vision: Let the spirit of Art Deco shine on! Our Purpose: To protect, preserve, promote and celebrate Art Deco era heritage We do this by offering Heritage Advice and Counsel; Tourism Walks&Tours products; Retail; Festival and Events.
