It’s that time of year again!  We are calling for proposals from Māori artists across Aotearoa for WAITUHI – Matariki’s public art offering. This year WAITUHI will occupy two neighbouring sites – the flags at Frank Kitts Park near Whairepo Lagoon and two sections of Town Hall hoarding at Te Ngākau Civic Square. 


This year will mark the sixth anniversary of WAITUHI, following on from the first initiated in 2014 – a mural designed and painted by Johnson Witehira, the second in 2015 – a billboard banner designed by Wharehoka Smith. 2016 marked the inaugural series of flags designed by Stevei Houkamau followed by Keri Mei Zagrobelna and Reweti Arapere in 2017, and by Sian Montgomery-Neutze and Angela Kilford & Aliyah Winter in 2018. 




How to apply

Proposals are due by 5.00pm, Monday 29 April. For more information and a copy of the artist’s brief check the links above.
