Calling on Volunteers to Make Art in support of the Auckland Rainbow Parade
If you feel like you missed your calling and have an artist inside just busting to get out – this could be your chance.
Rainbow Pride Auckland is calling on 25 volunteers to help create a commemorative piece of art and the best thing is you don’t need artistic talent, just enthusiasm.
Rainbow Pride Auckland is creating a fundraising opportunity for the parade which involves the creation of a piece of art. The artwork has already been designed and will be cut into sections, and then divided out to anyone wanting to take part in creating the final replica. The design is made up of some key elements spanning the years e.g. Hero Parade, Queen St (where the parade first started), Western Park, Ponsonby Road, and Air NZ’s Pink Flight to Mardi Gras, to name just a few.
None of the people assisting with the creation will know what the final design is until it comes together on display at the event hosted by the parade’s media sponsor MediaWorks.
Limited prints of the final artwork will be available to purchase and the final artwork will be auctioned off on TradeMe over a two-week period.
If you think you have an artist inside that needs to be released, sign up by Friday 2 September and you will be supplied with a tile of the artwork and paints and brushes supplied courtesy of sponsor Resene to be painted as per a template that will be provided. Celebrate the Auckland Rainbow Parade and make your mark with art.
