Lakes Charitable Trust Trading As
Performing Arts Charitable Trust
Performing Arts Charitable Trust is inspired by our local talent in the performing arts, the need for all to be included no matter your disability or culture, and those who have financial restrictions but have a real passion and talent for the arts. Often these are factors which prevent our youth from accessing tuition and opportunities centered around the performing arts.
PACT was established under the name Lakes Charitable Trust in 2018 in Rotorua, NZ, by Rebecca & Quintin Brake. In 2019 Lakes Charitable Trust was granted Charitable status and was re-branded Performing Arts Charitable Trust (PACT) to help align with our current objectives. We endeavour to support the cultural development of the community to ensure performing arts can be accessed by everyone to flourish in our communities.
In 2021 PACT acquired Lakes Performing Arts Company rebranding as Lake Performing Arts Centre - Herēhia to ensure the Performing arts can remain for the community and the whole Whānau can enjoy it.
