Square Edge Arts Centre
Art can be an uplifter, a thought provoker, gift giver, smile maker and a political poker. Walk with us in your time, read about the who and how of art and our artists in our region and sit with us for awhile. Take something from what you read, see and hear, and follow the narratives that lead artists to their art. Welcome to our art at the heart of Manawatu
