Celebrate Tāmaki Makaurau and our creative neighbourhoods with a selection of arts projects created by people from Auckland’s many communities in collaboration with established artists.

Whānui is a communal adventure: a collection of participatory arts projects in which an amazing mix of people who call Auckland home create, join in with and experience artworks across the region in the many spaces and places that form our neighbourhoods – street corners, shopping centres, parks and mare.

FREE and filled with life-affirming, interactive, get-in-amongst-it events, Whānui will be popping up near you.

Photographs taken by Charis Tupou, (Māngere) and Jocelyn Chow, (Botany,  participants in the Eye Spy project, part of Whānui 2017, where 37 children from across Auckland attended workshops with professional photographers and created their own photographic exhibition based on the theme What is precious to me?”

From love and unity comes our wellbeing.
