Once again Wellington Sculpture Trust, in association with Wellington City Council, will hold PARK(ing) Day on Friday 4 March 2022. 

We’re looking for proposals from creatives with innovative ideas, to occupy an inner-city car park for one day.

PARK(ing) Day’s mission is to generate debate around how public space is created and allocated, calling attention to the need for more urban open space and improving the quality of the urban human habitat…at least until the meter runs out!

Successful applicants will receive $500 towards costs. 

Proposals are due Monday 31 January 2022.

For more information call Wellington Sculpture Trust on 04 499 6644.

 

Background

PARK(ing) Day is an annual open-source global event where citizens, artists and designers collaborate temporarily to transform metered parking spaces into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public places. The original PARK(ing) Day concept was initiated by Rebar, www.rebargroup.org
