Pātaka is often referred to as the cultural jewel of Porirua City. A vibrant hub for a wide range of community gatherings and corporate events, Pātaka is the perfect place for small group meetings or large multi-day events.
For larger events our atrium space is filled with permanent art works by many leading national and international artists, providing a unique and memorable point of difference for your next event. For smaller events we have a range of options, including outdoors spaces for summer functions.
Our gallery spaces show world-class art by local and international artists, and our museum spaces tell the story of Porirua City from the settlement of Māori through to the mid-twentieth century. If you would like these spaces to be made available for your event, we would be happy to discuss how this might be possible, so your guests have a wonderful experience while they are here.
