  • Journalists or media specialists from the arts
  • environment designers or architects
  • artists
  • UX or product designers
  • curators or programmers.

Collectively, the panel will have:

  • a thorough knowledge of the region’s creative sector
  • a passion to see public art transform how people experience a place and drive better outcomes for that place  
  • an informed view of Auckland’s geography and where arts and culture can feature
  • an understanding of Auckland’s rapidly evolving demographics and diverse population
  • a global perspective on the role creativity plays in creating a world-class city and in realising economic, social, cultural and environmental outcomes
