“My work is a reminder of the Māori history and of the natural world our city sits on. These are universal symbols of wellbeing.” – Tracey Tawhiao

Changing Lanes is a collaborative project between Artweek and Heart of the City, bringing together projects that will transform Auckland’s urban spaces as part of Artweek.
The project aims to help create connections in our community, provide opportunities for artists and enhance public spaces. A selection of leading New Zealand artists will activate city centre laneways and these projects will reference Auckland's unique heritage and signal the changing nature of the city's urban spaces and potential future use of the sites.
