Masons Screen

Masons Screen is an outdoor 24-hour public screen for artists' videos.

Supported by Wellington City Council and programmed by CIRCUIT Artist Film and Video Aotearoa New Zealand, Masons Screen presents a new artist’s work each month.

The screen is located on Masons Lane – a pedestrian walkway between The Terrace and Lambton Quay.

Call for proposals

A call for new works is issued via CIRCUIT and Wellington City Council. Works must be made by a Wellington-based or affiliated artist, or as part of a project in the Wellington region.

To keep up to date with deadlines, subscribe to our monthly City Arts Panui e-newsletter.
