An Event Like No Other
Like other black-tie events, guests will receive an exquisite three-course meal, but unlike other events, a unique art experience where guests will dine and converse with world-class artists, be awed by brilliant musicians, and hear from business leaders and art experts.
A Book Like No Other
Each guest will also receive a limited-edition copy of Out There: SCAPE Public Art 1998-2018, which explores the fascinating history of SCAPE Public Art and public art in Christchurch. This beautiful, hard-cover book was written by well-known arts commentator and historian Dr Warren Feeney and is filled with stunning images of SCAPE Public Art artworks. Anyone with a passion and interest in the visual arts should not be without it.
The Anderson Lloyd and SCAPE Public Art Business and Arts Partnership Awards will be presented during the evening, which recognise the high levels of partnership between businesses and the arts required to produce outstanding public art. Winning artists and businesses will be presented with an incredible artwork designed by Neil Dawson for their contributions towards building a strong and vibrant arts community in Christchurch.
Entries are now open. If your business has worked with a SCAPE artist to produce an artwork in the last 20 years, don’t miss out on entering for these prestigious awards.
