About the RenewArt Project

This project was conceived to celebrate the regeneration of the arts community in the wake of the COVID-19 to highlight the extraordinary work produced locally by embracing the theme of ‘renewal.’ Our initiative will culminate in a two-day combined community event incorporating both visual and performing arts.

Applications were open to residents across the Wakatipu basin and Upper Clutha, including Luggate, Hāwea, Albert Town, Wānaka, Cardrona, Makarora, Arrowtown, Queenstown, Gibbston, Glenorchy and Kingston.

The Art Renewal Project will benefit the local arts practitioners who have been selected to create work for the community events. The events will allow visual and performing art practitioners to showcase work based on the theme ‘Renew’. A peer review panel selected works from applications and a financial contribution is being provided to these practitioners to create their work and be showcased in the community events.

About The Event

Free community events will be held in Queenstown on Friday 9th and Saturday 10th October and in Wanaka on Friday 16th and Saturday 17th October 2020. It is hoped that these events will demonstrate that our artists and performers are resilient and determined to bounce back.

Our goal is to reunite and reinvigorate the artists in our community, helping them reconnect with our collective community through the power and beauty of their work. The Trust’s sincere hope is that these events will celebrate our wonderful community of artists and demonstrate that an arts renewal is well underway in the Three Lakes district.

Thank you to all creatives who applied to be part of RenewArt 2020, and congratulations to the 20 Visual Artists and 21 Performing Arts Groups who have been selected to create their works. These will be presented at RenewArt Creative Community Showcases in October.

What Was The Selection Process

A peer review panel was assembled and developed a set of criteria for selecting works based on the theme ‘renewal’ (whatever that means to you) and a cohort of performing and visual artists were selected from those who applied. Successful applicants were notified on the 5th August and will have until 28th September to complete their selected works.
