Auckland Council seeks nominations and expressions of interest to fill three upcoming vacancies on the Public Art Advisory Panel.
Established in 2014, the role of the panel is to provide Auckland Council advice and expert viewpoints on public art.
By providing advice, feedback and recommendations, the panel makes an active contribution to the council about the role of arts and culture in the everyday lives of Aucklanders, and a sense of identity and belonging across the city.
The panel has oversight of the regional public art work programme, including new commissions, gift offers of public art and major renewals of public art works held in the Auckland Council Art Collection. Another key project for the city is the integration of public art in the City Rail Link (CRL). The panel also provides a forum for discussion about priorities for sector investment.
The panel works closely with the Manager of Arts and Culture, Head of Creative Strategy and public art team in the Arts, Community and Events department of Council. Key policy documents which support the advisory framework of the panel are Auckland Council’s Public Art Policy and Toi Whītiki Arts and Culture Strategic Action Plan.
Becoming a member of the panel gives you an opportunity to create connections, foster patronage and partnerships and engage in robust discourse about the arts.
What’s required of the panel?
The panel is made up of 6 - 9 members, with a term of service of 5 years.
