Calling all ARTISTS! Art Makers Aotearoa, Objectspace and Te Taumata Toi-a-Iwi are joining forces to throw a pre-election art party to lift our collective spirits!

This year has been difficult for artists, come have a wine about it and hear what advocacy is happening in the sector. New artwork will be on display with free take-home prints from Elisabeth Pointon and Marc Conaco with a colourful badge-making workshop by Sione Monu.

Collective action can make a real difference and dancing and drinks never hurt so grab your artists friends and join us on Thursday 12 October. Your evening will include: 

- Speeches (cool ones about art activism) from 6pm
- Badge-making workshop with Sione Monū 6.30-7.30pm
- DJs, Dancing and Drinks until 8.30pm

See you there! is a rallying point for artists, creatives, and advocates who share a vision for a more vibrant future for our country’s cultural landscape. Today, our arts and culture sector is facing unprecedented challenges. It's time to respond to those challenges and shape our future with a cohesive, forward-thinking strategy to uplift and support our creative communities. Collective action works – it’s time to organise! Check out our website and sign-up at the Party to join the mailing list.
