Artweek Auckland 2016

Artweek Auckland spreads like wildfire across Auckland blazing into a new precinct in 2016 with a vibrant and dynamic programme. Over ten days the festival will celebrate and showcase the visual arts and artists of Auckland from 8 – 16 October, with favourite events returning and new artists included as it expands into East Auckland. 


Throughout the week activations will be taking place in different precincts all over Auckland including the Central City, Newmarket, Ponsonby, Arch Hill, Parnell, K’Road, Devonport, and more – also now including a full programme in the Eastern suburbs. Newcomers and experts alike can immerse themselves in Auckland’s amazingly dynamic art world, experience striking and remarkable works.


From free guided walks and cycle tours, to galleries and city lanes, the Auckland region will come alive with drama, light, transformations, graffiti, and art!
