Changing Lanes is a collaborative project between Heart of the City and Artweek, bringing together projects that will transform Auckland’s urban spaces temporarily as part of Artweek.
The project aims to help create connections in our community, provide opportunities for artists, enhance public spaces and uplift spirits. These projects reference the spaces’ unique heritage, their use as pedestrian walking routes, intimate city business locations and the changing nature of the city's urban spaces.
Celebrating this year’s theme of sustainability, these installations explore how art and sustainability intersect. What does the concept mean in the art world? Why is it necessary for the arts to address sustainability? And how can sustainable practices be incorporated into every face of art making? The creative thinking, innovation and non-linear approach to problem solving inherent in the arts will be vital to securing a sustainable future for ourselves, our communities, and our planet.
