Festival of Adult Learning

September 7-14, 2020

Adult learning can take place at many different places and levels of the community. The Festival of Adult Learning Ahurei Ākonga celebrates adult learning wherever it is happening - at home, at the local library, community centre, sports club, private training organisation or university.  Our 2020 festival will be the grand finale for our Year of Lifelong Learning and will include a wrap party showcasing some of the many activities that have taken place during the year.

Funding is available for events that may take place at different times during the year OR in the usual way during the festival week September 7-14. Funding will be allocated according to the scope and strength of event ideas. We encourage individuals and organizations to work collaboratively or regionally. Grants of $300 - $500 are available for small events while larger grants will be allocated to communities or regions working together on a big event or range of events.
