Tickets are now available for what promises to be highly enjoyable and entertaining events for all ages, the RenewArt 2020 Creative Community Showcases.
Held at the Queenstown Event Centre on October 9 and 10, and the Lake Wānaka Centre on October 16 and 17, the event will feature twenty visual artists and 21 performing arts groups across 17 disciplines including: dance, painting, music, sculpture, theatre, photography, aerial performance, jewellery, comedy, film, light installations, pencil, fire dance and ceramics.
With one mutual theme of "renewal," this event will reunite our community through the incredible power of arts and culture.
Three Lakes Cultural Trust general manager Jo Brown said the idea behind RenewArt was to create uplifting events to be enjoyed by the entire district post-Covid-19, while also enabling a paid work opportunity for local artists.
“The RenewArt creative community showcase promises to be an enjoyable and entertaining event for the community while providing an opportunity to support the incredible artistic talent we have right here in our region,” she said. “We understand that this is the first time an event like this, offering the work of so many different performing and visual artists, has ever taken place in our district and we are very excited to present it.”
The Trust has secured commitments in excess of $180,000 to deliver the project and reward selected artists for their work. The RenewArt community events are supported by funding from the Hugo Charitable Trust, Three Lakes Cultural Trust, Central Lakes Trust, Community Trust South, Otago Community Trust and Creative New Zealand.
All events are free to the public and tickets are available on eventbrite.co.nz. For more information and links to tickets, visit: https://www.threelakesculturaltrust.co.nz/renewart.
