PRESS RELEASE - September 2015:
Our 2015 planned venture, Popd’ART 2015 came about when we were offered a gallery space in an empty central city shop in Hartham Place North - we have been working with the Urban Dream Brokerage team on this idea for much of this year. The idea of a ‘pop up’ interactive ‘arts experience with a difference’ to mark the City’s 50th Birthday has quickly grown and we are ready to roll 1-16 October!
Reaching out to youth, to a range of cultural groups and to artists with a point of difference is what we are about for this project. The Popd’ART Can Do Wall (designed by local schools) will see the placement of up to 5000 cans of food into a giant wall mural over the 2 weeks– ‘Porirua 50 years young’ is the theme. KidsCan NZ & Resene Paints are on board in support of this ‘one of a kind’ project – the canned food will go to our local KidsCan schools at the completion of the event.
Popd’ART 2015 Dream Wall will unfold over the two weeks as visitors to the gallery space add their vision for the next 50 years in the life of our city.
- Events/ performances/ installations will grow and change by the day – every day 1-16
Official opening: midday 2 October 2015. All welcome
Who will place the first can in the Can Do wall mural?
