Join Us On KOAST

The Kerikeri Open Art Studios Trail (KOAST) was first  held October 25 -27 2014 thanks to Ann Winship who developed the concept in Kerikeri .

Since then it has been held every year and has gone from strength to strength.

Every year KOAST welcomes new members and encourages all artists to take part in the Trail held on Labour Weekend,.

As KOAST is a voluntary organisation, including the Committee, we ask all members to do anything they can to help – selling Trail Guides, helping collect information for social media, putting up the signs, collecting raffle prizes and heaps of other things.

As we are not holding KOAST this year we are looking at other avenues to promote artists and their work so we’ll be needing help with these.

When the time comes, the Committee will form work groups with each committee member being responsible for a particular area so if you have particular skills in any of these or can assist with anything please get in contact with us.  We do ask everyone involved to help in some way otherwise it becomes an enormous amount of work for a very few!
