There are opportunities to exhibit artwork at Toi Pōneke Gallery and the Courtenay Place light boxes.
Toi Pōneke Gallery
Toi Pōneke exhibits work by solo artists, groups and curators, with priority given to Wellington-based artists. It supports emerging contemporary artists and curators, as well as more established artists. Community and recreational artists with high standards of technical ability and presentation are also considered.

Call for proposals
We are calling for curators and artists to propose new light box exhibitions for our 2020/21 programme.
We are also calling for Matariki light box proposals from Māori curators and artists for exhibition during the Matariki festivals in 2020 and 2021, as a time of renewal and an acknowledgement of the natural cycles of the universe. Each exhibition will run for approximately four months each, from early 2020.
The deadline for proposals is 5pm, Wednesday 23 October 2019.
For more information, contact Meredith Robertshawe, Senior Arts Advisor.
Using empty retail or commercial spaces
