DEPOT GALLERIES AND FUTURE EXHIBITIONS: 2021
Covid 19 has presented many challenges to Aotearoa NZ, including the creative and cultural landscape Depot Artspace inhabits.
Auckland Council’s Emergency Budget signals cuts to all services, including parks, community, arts and events and other funding sources, such as Lion Foundation note the impact of Covid-19 on their available resources.
Government’s Arts Relief package has targeted funding to specific arts centres, disciplines and services, but has left Councils in charge of its regional services, including Auckland Art Gallery.
As a creative community funded by Council and other agency grants we are faced with questions about the sustainability of our galleries, at least in their current form.
As we review our future over the next few months we will not be accepting applications to exhibit for 2021. However, if you do have an interest in booking the gallery we would like to invite you to submit an expression of interest.
It’s an opportunity to introduce yourself and tell us about your idea/theme for the exhibition; who would be taking part; how it would involve, engage or benefit audiences; the value to you of exhibiting at the Depot.
And once we have a clear picture of our direction we will be in touch with you.
In the meantime, keep well and keep creating!!!
