New Zealand Asian Sports & Cultural Festival is a signature event initiated by New Zealand Culture and arts Foundation and Synergy Community Trust, and co-organized by local associations such as New Zealand Chinese Culture and Arts Exchange Centre, Asian Library Trust etc. Since 2018, the event has attracted over 1000 performers, 100 organizations and supporters participating in sports and cultural activities; and has achieved the aim of having hundreds of medals in five sports competition areas including basketball, badminton, ping-pang, chess and Go. In addition, this event has integrated people from various ethnic backgrounds such as Chinese, Indians, Koreans, Malaysians, Philippines and Europeans etc. This is a remarkable success which not only brought sports competitions and cultural performances together for the first time ever; but built up a bridge for ethnic groups in the local community to exchange their cultures.
