Central Otago District Arts Trust


The Central Otago District Arts Trust (CODAT) is a Charitable Trust, funded by Council, which supports local artists and the arts. CODAT was founded in 2009 to implement The Arts Strategy. This is a document created following discussions facilitated by Central Otago District Council, Central Otago artists and representatives across art genres living in the region. These groups looked at ways of further developing the arts of Central Otago, and the formation of CODAT is the result.
