The Bishop’s Action Foundation (BAF) and Access Radio Taranaki (ART) have collaborated to form a space of thought-leadership and innovation for Taranaki. This partnership brings together an online reservoir where community groups can access local, national and international innovators talking about their field of expertise and their stories of experience, land and culture. 

Access Radio Taranaki 104.4FM

 ART supports and grows the Taranaki community by offering a broadcast voice to groups and people who might not otherwise be heard. 


BAF is a charitable organisation working to create and sustain flourishing communities.
