Papa Hou

Mō tātou katoa. For all of us.

Papa Hou is our treasure box, a unique piece of architecture that incorporates an astonishing array of spaces for a broad range of uses. Each of the spaces in Papa Hou has a particular niche for our community that is currently not being me elsewhere. It is important to us that we meet gaps in provision, that we serve our community as well as we can by being relevant, and that we don’t undermine other great work being done in the city, instead we compliment it.

Event attendees all commented on what a great venue Papa Hou is and the standard of the facilities. The combination of well-appointed dance studio, cafe, hotel and restaurant in a central location meant we could run a focused weekend that kept everyone together and enabled our schedule to flow. I would wholeheartedly recommend Papa Hou for any movement-based practice and look forward to hosting other events there in future.
