WOMAD has always prided its self on being an industry leader towards leaving a minimal environmental footprint, and heading into the 2017 festival WOMAD continues the strive to become a completely zero waste-to-landfill festival.
Taranaki the world’s second best destination for 2017 says Lonely Planet. Definitive global travel guide publisher Lonely Planet has judged Taranaki the second best region in the world to visit in its Best in Travel 2017 yearbook, an accolade that is being welcomed by the locals.
WOMAD New Zealand is adding a new chapter to the 2017 festival – the World of Words. The new programme is supported by a new festival sponsor, the Western Institute of Technology at Taranaki (WITT) and will feature authors, musicians, critical thinkers and entrepreneurs from New Zealand and abroad.
