Who We Are

The Auckland Marathi Association emerged in 1995 when a few families from Maharashtra in New Zealand felt the need to bond around their shared culture and identity in a new land they were still learning to call home.

Since its formation to now, the Association has grown not just in numbers but in scope and ambition. Today, AMA is more than a place to share a cultural identity, to come together and celebrate festivals and occasions. Second generation Kiwi-Indians of marathi parents contribute to activities and bring fresh ideas to the mix.
Performing art, classical and folk dance, music, theatre; our events are tethered to Maharashtra’s rich literary and folk heritage. Members have made it a proud association.

Our Approach

ऑकलंड मराठी असोसिएशन

ऑकलंड परिसरातील मराठी समाजाच्या माध्यमातून, मराठी भाषा व संस्कृती जपावी हे या मंडळाचे प्राथमिक उद्धिष्ट होय. 

मराठी भाषेतील संगीत, नृत्य, नाट्य, लेखन इत्यादी कलागुणांना वाव मिळावा म्हणून हे मंडळ अनेक विविधरंगी कार्यक्रमांचे आयोजन करते. त्याच बरोबर भारतातील उभरत्या आणि लोकप्रिय कलाकारांना येथे बोलावून सदस्यांचा दुवा मायदेशाशी कायम ठेवण्याचा प्रयत्न केला जातो.
