Over two nights annually (it's our 3rd Edition this year!!), Art in the Dark lights up Ponsonby’s Western Park with creative projects from New Zealand’s most innovative artists. Participating in Art in the Dark challenges artists to evolve projects that not only fit the specific contours of the great, urban outdoors but that must illuminate the dark using clean, eco-friendly energy. The end results are always pretty spectacular, just check out our galleries from previous years www.artinthedark.co.nz

On 9 and 10 November 2012, incredible installations, short films and performances will have the park glowing with ingenuity. The free event has become a platform for bright Kiwi minds to show-off their talents, and a chance for the community to get involved in the art world from the comfort of their city’s own backyard. The Art in the Dark team is committed to bringing New Zealand talent to New Zealand, and the rest of the world. Those kiwi sparks are just too bright to ignore, after all.

We have positions available for this year’s event where you will have the opportunity to experience firsthand working on a large-scale event. We are currently looking for enthusiastic Event Hosts and Donations Hosts for Friday 9th and Saturday 10th of November from 7pm-midnight. This role would suit those interested in being part of the festival and interacting with visitors alongside acting as an ambassadors of the event. You'll be supervising installations, conducting tours throughout the park and/or collecting donations throughout the night of the event.

This is a great opportunity to network, get up close and personal with some amazing artworks and be part of a large scale, award winning event .

Come join the fun!!
