2019 Auckland Arts Festival Whānui Project Call for Proposals

2019 Auckland Arts Festival Whānui Project Call for Proposals

‘Whakawhānuitia, whakanuia, Te Reo Māori i roto i ngā hāpori o Tāmaki’

Broaden and celebrate our Māori language throughout the communities in Auckland.

Mā te Aroha, Me te Kotahitanga, ka ora ai tātou. (from love and unity come out wellbeing)

Whānui is a community led programme within the Auckland Arts Festival, which celebrates the creative neighbourhoods of Tāmaki Makaurau, in collaboration with its communities and established artists.

This year Whānui is further enriched by the thread of our Māori language within TOITŪ TE REO, which expresses Auckland Arts Festival’s commitment to te reo Māori.  Alongside our communities we hope to celebrate and normalise the use of our Māori language.

We are calling for proposals from Auckland based artists across all disciplines who would be interested in working with us to design and deliver a project with the theme of Te Reo Māori. We are looking for two projects in total.

Whānui projects and their process must be meaningful for participants and their whānau, and centre around art and creativity. You could work directly with participants to create something together, or design a project that is meaningful to the participants and results in a work you make and present back to them – we are open to your ideas.

Depending on the art form and taking into consideration participant’s timetables, we anticipate the project would occur part-time over approximately 6 weeks. Interaction with the groups begins on a weekly basis and builds to twice a week towards the end of the project, we are open to alternative suggestions around timetable. The resulting creation would be presented during the Auckland Arts Festival dates: 4-24 March 2019.

In the past we have had a range of one-off shows, short performance seasons, 3 week long exhibitions and a digital gallery. To provide you with a bit of context as to the scale, this video gives an overview of our 2017 & 2018 projects.

Selected artists would be paid a fee to deliver their project and have full support from the Festival.
