Once again Wellington Sculpture Trust, in association with Wellington City Council, will hold PARK(ing) Day on Saturday 4 March 2023

Are you an artist, actor, performer? Do you have an issue you want to engage with the public about?

We’re looking for creative and innovative proposals for temporary installations, to occupy an inner-city car park for one day. They should be accessible; enliven our cityscape; provoke reflection about how we use public space; and encourage interaction and engagement.

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, and there are also two $500 awards available for the Judge's Choice and People's Choice winners.

Proposals are due Friday 13 January 2023.

 

For more information call Wellington Sculpture Trust on 04 499 6644 or email at wellingtonsculpture@xtra.co.nz

Wellington Sculpture Trust thanks Wellington City Council and the Creative Communities Funding scheme for supporting this event.

 

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 or temporary public places. The original PARK(ing) Day concept was initiated by Rebar, www.rebargroup.org

How to apply

To download a brief or for more information, please see the Sculpture Trust website: sculpture.org.nz/store/doc/PARK(ing)-Day-2023-Call-for-proposals.pdf
