Kia ora,

'Opportunity Arts' advocates, empowers and provides practical support for artists of diverse backgrounds who face barriers to participation in the arts; to develop individual, sustainable arts practices.

We work with talented and dedicated, emerging artists, who for various reasons (for example, disability) require additional support to access opportunities that can increase their audience, profile, income, sense of pride and purpose.

We are passionate that with this mahi we can encourage social change and diversify the New Zealand contemporary art scene. Giving a voice and platform to those who are often unheard and unseen within this community and wider society.

Each artists journey with Opportunity Arts is different. But here's how it worked for Peter:

→ Peter Peterson is a talented sculptor (he creates stunning ceramics).

→ Peter wants to exhibit more. His work is of a high-quality and should have a larger audience.

→ Peter finds reading, utilizing the internet and art management logistics challenging.

→ Opportunity Arts tells Peter about upcoming shows and supports him to complete the application and all the logistics (ie: writing an artist statement, attending the opening) to be included in the show.

→ Opportunity Arts sponsors Peter by paying $50 submission fee (because Peter is receiving a benefit and has no disposable income).

→ Peter is included in the show, the public gets to experience his work and Peter is stoked! Opportunity Arts is also really pleased!
