Applications due Monday February 26

Pacific Arts Programme, Auckland

Auckland Council invites creatives of Pacific heritage to submit their ideas for consideration to be part of a new Pacific arts programme to be launched in 2018.

The kaupapa of the programme is to showcase urban Pacific expression and creativity from Tāmaki Makaurau – and to share it with the world.

Intended outcomes of the project:

  • Create a platform to showcase work by Pacific artists and producers
  • Contribute to creating a flourishing and sustainable Pacific arts ecology
  • Encourage inter-generational and cross-art form collaboration to build capability and enable experimentation among Pacific producers
  • Create dialogue within the sector and between audiences and artists
  • Be driven by Pacific values.

Auckland Council is looking to feature a range of projects across the Auckland region. They welcome bold, new ideas from practitioners and organisations across all creative genres.

What Auckland Council is looking for:

  • A single ‘big idea’ or concept, that will have a high impact on audiences and communities, including youth
  • Takes place in public space
  • Is highly engaging for audiences in real time and online
  • Represents and/or reflects Tāmaki Makaurau
  • Is created and produced by creatives of Pacific heritage
  • Is original new work and not happening anywhere else.
