Save Dom Polski

The ‘Dom Polski’ (Polish House) at 257 Riddiford Street, Newtown has served as the physical and spiritual home of the Wellington Polish community since the mid-1960s.

In that time, it has served the community faithfully, hosting an uncountable number of performances, dinners, lunches, dances, fairs, meetings and get-togethers. It has hosted many offshoot Polish clubs (Bridge Clubs, Chess Clubs, Youth Clubs etc..), as well as being the home for the Wellington Polish School for many years.

Through the years it has also served as a home for many other ethnic and community groups. It has truly become a central feature of the Newtown and Wellington cultural landscape.

Like many buildings in Wellington, today the building desperately needs earthquake strengthening and renovation, or alternately, a total rebuild.

Re-imagining Toi Pōneke Arts Centre

Toi Poneke Arts Centre lease expires in 2025, so now’s the perfect time to think about what a more accessible, inclusive arts centre model, which meets the needs of diverse communities, could look like.

Wellington City Council have already spoken with the Toi Pōneke community and now they would now love to hear from the wider Wellington creative sector through an online survey and at a series of five interactive talks.

The talks will take place in several of the city’s creative spaces and will be an opportunity for open discussion about how to support artists, development, career pathways and Mana Whenua partnership.
