Our Kaupapa


Founded in 2013, The Incubator has focused on creating a dedicated space and place for our grassroots arts and culture community to collaborate, develop and thrive in Tauranga.  Now with five dedicated multi-disciplinary venues at
the Historic Village, we have upped the ante by creating outreach opportunities to bring arts and culture into the commercial and hospitality areas of the city, including the CBD. 
Concepts like adorned pohutukawa Christmas trees, imbue our city with individuality and reflect our regional identity.
These and other place-making initiatives build the brand and perceptions of Tauranga as a vibrant attractive city.
This brings significant benefits to everyone who lives and works in the city including businesses looking to attract talent to the region and employees who want to achieve work/ life balance. 


The Incubator is seeking sponsorship partnerships with others who can help us to create a magnetic and innovative Tauranga. 

If you believe (like us), that a city needs arts and culture to take it from good to great, then please consider joining our
Red Sticker Group.  Not only will you stand to benefit, but so too will your staff .. and your wider community. With a red sticker next to your name, you’re going a long way to helping us create a win/win for all.


A partnership with The Incubator will foster creative collaboration, expand your influence with customers and build engagement and loyalty with your staff. We will work with you to tailor our sponsorship benefits to align with
your business goals and marketing strategy.
