APRIL 2022

NZ MURAL CONTEST

KATIKATI FESTIVAL OF ARTS

Katikati Open Air Art  have decided that a decision will be made in early February 2022 as to whether the NZ Mural Contest 2020 (Celebrating Unsung Heroes of 2020) which had to be postponed because of Covid, and currently scheduled for 19 -23 April 2022 will or will not be able to proceed.  

The theme of our (postponed) Festival to be held in 2022 is:
“UNSUNG HEROES IN 2020”

He aha te mea nui o te ao. He tangata, he tangata, he tangata.
“What is the most important thing in the world? It is people, it is people, it is people.”

2020 was an ‘unprecedented times’ for our country and globally. Lockdowns; face masks; changes to employment, have affected us all and has brought out the best in many of us from kindness to networking within our community.

Katikati Open Air Art would like to celebrate and acknowledge the individuals in our community who gave outstanding service to those isolated and in need. Someone who has done great deeds but received little or no recognition for them.

In a move from our normal mural contest each artist will receive a photo of one of our chosen unsung heroes to paint.
All the portraits will then be placed together to form one large mural to be installed in our town as a reminder of this challenging time in modern history.

ABOUT THE KATIKATI ARTS FESTIVAL

CELEBRATING

ARTS SINCE 2006

The Katikati Festival of Arts is a biennial event, hosted by Katikati Open Air Art since 2006.

The event continues to grow and develop and this year is a month long celebration of the arts.

Along with many other artists, performers, musicians and entertainers that are part of the festival, mural artists will be sharing their talents and skills as part of the NZ Mural Contest.

This year’s Mural Contest theme is ‘Celebrating Unsung Heroes in 2020’ and the festival theme is ‘Lighting Up the Town’.

Katikati Open Air Art is excited that arts and culture is now recognised as an integral part in the life of our community. The arts spirit is due to the foresight and commitment the original Katikati Open Air Art committee had 30 years ago when they set about developing our amazing outdoor art gallery to highlight the importance of arts within a community.
