Our Cultural Icons Re-Homed
Through the generosity of a Depot Artspace member donation, the support of an ArtsLab website developer and award winning Iceberg website builders, we have been able to rebuild the Cultural Icons website to include a greatly improved user interface and all interviews as fast streaming podcasts.
It is now even easier to explore the stories of 80 iconic and emerging New Zealand creatives including Nigel Brown, Alison East, Helen Pollock, Terry Stringer, Peter Peryer, Fatu Feu’u, Stanley Palmer, Tony Watkins, Peter Scholes and Mary McIntyre.
The Cultural Icons project celebrates people who have shaped New Zealand's arts & culture scene. A valuable, informative and accessible series of recorded interviews and talks, conducted between contemporaries, with the aim of sharing the histories, stories and experiences of some of New Zealand's most significant arts and culture contributors. The project also brings into view those creative contributors who are establishing their place as Icons in the Emerging Icons series. Emerging Icons include Jermaine Reihana, Drew Hill and Simon Kerr among others.
The interviews are freely available at www.culturalicons.co.nz
