Square Edge Creative Centre is housed in a spectacular art deco
building. Previously the Council Chambers, it has been the focus of community art activity for nearly 25 years.
Square Edge concentrates
primarily on providing cheap inner-city office and studio space for
artists and related organisations, while allowing other community
organisations to benefit from the facilities.
Ground floor retail space is available for start-up galleries and
Artist studios are accomodated in the historic stables in the rear courtyard, and on the first and second floors.
Regular exhibitions, concerts,and performances offer a sample of the Manawatu's creative fare.
