• Expression of Interest: Pānui/Suffrage 125th Anniversary Temporary Artworks


    Emerging artists are invited to express their interest in creating temporary works commissioned to mark the 125th anniversary of women’s suffrage in New Zealand.


    Auckland Council is looking for semi‐permanent installations with a lifespan of five years.


    This enables works that will thematically respond to the anniversary.


    Auckland Council has identified three likely sites as locations:

    Tin Tacks Reserve Onehunga

    Crawford Reserve Howick

    Killarney Park Takapuna (TBC)


    Auckland Council is looking for artists to produce a concept that:

    is a stand-alone artwork

    conceptually fits with the context of the site

    contributes to transforming how Aucklanders experience the area

    can be developed within the available budget and proposed timeline

    has a lifespan of five years

    is made of robust materials that are resistant to vandalism and weather

    is less than four cubic metres in size

    is designed to be fixed to a foundation two metres by two metres, and half a metre high

    weighs less than four tonnes.


    Auckland Council welcomes expressions of interest from both individuals and collectives.
