June 2016 Recipients
Headland Sculpture on the Gulf is New Zealand’s premier outdoor sculpture exhibition, presenting significant new contemporary sculptural works to the public every second year at Matiatia Bay. The Waiheke based organisation received $5,175 to develop a free, downloadable education kit.
The programme will be used to engage the local, visitor and student community in conversations and workshops to excite their interest and enhance their appreciation and understanding of contemporary art.
Both a public and student programme will be developed. The public programme will consist of pre-event talks, artist talks, curatorial tours and art guides, whilst the student programme will connect young people with New Zealand arts and culture, educating them about the history of sculpture in New Zealand.
