It’s a whimsical inner city garden party and everyone’s invited!

Under efforts to celebrate spring and #ClaimTheConcrete, Myers Park underpass participates with us in a transformational art installation.

Create your own pinwheel, add it to our sculpture and enjoy an afternoon of lamingtons, lemonade, sausages and giant outdoor games.

The event is part of a series of events happening below the Myers Park Bridge, as part of a youth-led initiative to transform the space through art. Brought to you by The Basement Theatre in collaboration with Auckland Council, #ClaimTheCity and Splice.  All events are free, child and dog friendly!

Shiloh Dobie, in collaboration with the above, was involved in concept and design.
