Auckland Pride Festival

The Auckland Pride Festival Team is led by Executive Director, Max Tweedie. The Executive Director is responsible for the delivery of the annual Festival, and the day-to-day running of the organisation.

Max works full-time, year-round which is a first for Auckland Pride. This additional capacity ensures continuity in Auckland Pride’s funding, partnerships, and key relationships. It also allows for advanced planning of our key events and the Festival, ensuring we’re delivering on our Strategic Plan.

The Executive Director is directly accountable to the board of the Auckland Pride Festival and meet regularly to ensure the Festival continues to be guided by the membership and wider community.

Max is available for anyone that wishes to discuss the 2022 Festival, and encourages anyone that is planning on creating art or putting on an event to get in touch. If you need assistance with the creation of an event, or just wish to discuss your idea don’t hesitate to get in contact.

In the lead up to the Festival, Auckland Pride employs a team of contractors to assist with the delivery of our key events, and the festival programme itself. These contractors report to the Executive Director, and are employed closer to the Festival.
