The Aotearoa Public Art Heritage Trust has been founded to support the work of the research initiative Public Art Heritage Aotearoa New Zealand <https://publicart.nz> through fundraising and other endeavours.
The goals of the research initiative include:
- to identify, document & communicate information about Aotearoa New Zealand’s 20th Century public art heritage to the public
- to work with experts to identify, assess & pursue heritage protection for works of significance;
- to facilitate the restoration and reinstatement of neglected works of significance (where possible);
- to encourage activities that support and build the Aotearoa New Zealand public art community.
We are also looking to establish an Aotearoa Public Art Forum as a space for peer support, sharing experiences and best-practice resources, and discussion of contemporary issues in the public art field.
All donations to this page will go towards supporting these activities.
