Art Deco Trust is a guardian, a storyteller, and an interpreter of unique national treasures.

The guardian of a collection of art deco buildings constructed after the 1931 Hawke’s Bay earthquake and fire;

The storyteller of courageous people who were able to imagine a new city and adopt the energy and optimism of a modern art and design movement to create it; and

The interpreter of the spirit of Art Deco to audiences in Hawkes Bay, and the world.
