Particular care has been taken with offerings that can operate under social distancing guidelines, says Eli Joseph, Spark & Flare Creative Director, who was tasked with curating the line-up.
“Summer in Wellington is usually a very busy time for our creative community. Between festivals, parades and other celebrations, it’s when Wellington is at its most dynamic.
“The fun challenge is finding ways to utilise the waterfront as a space for performance and letting artists share their work, while keeping everyone safe in a way that doesn't feel like the audience is being held at arm’s length.
“As a result we’ve found some fantastic, creative solutions.”
The Summer Sampler runs from December 04 to January 30. Information about all of the free events and performances will be made available through Facebook, Eventfinda, and the Wellington City Council website.
