Uniquely for New Zealand, since 1998, SCAPE Public Art has relied on associations that match the know-how, materials, service and support of business and industry with the creativity of artists to realise new art projects and permanent artworks. Twenty-five years later, SCAPE Public Art is the largest producer of contemporary public art in New Zealand.



Join SCAPE Public Art as a sponsor

We are always actively seeking and maintaining established relationships, and building positive connections with innovative and creative thinkers. Art defines who we are. Public art can assist in creating landmarks and more enjoyable urban spaces.  Ōtautahi Christchurch’s history and local identity can be reflected through public art, which can increase civic pride, community cohesion and develop a sense of place. 

Held in Ōtautahi Christchurch’s central city and supported through a range of partnerships, the SCAPE annual seasons showcase leading national and international contemporary artists, and provide a springboard for emerging local talent. Season artworks are created as a result of close collaboration between art and business, a unique and highly regarded model worldwide.

SCAPE promotes opportunities for all community sectors and helps to make the visual arts accessible – including the specific targeting of non-traditional arts audiences. Large-scale projects which challenge, educate, provoke and create debate make us aware of our significant city spaces and how we might interpret and enjoy them.

A very big thank you!

Every year, SCAPE Public Art, along with the Managing Curator and industry partners, work together with artists to bring their ambitious artistic concepts to life for the SCAPE Public Art Season.   

The partnership formed through these public art projects and seasons is a very special civic co-operation.

A significant portion of our annual sponsorship is made up of in-kind support. Engineers, architects, electricians, lawyers, property developers and owners, contractors, suppliers and many more are fundamental to making SCAPE Public Art happen. These are just a few of the amazing sponsors who have supported us over the years: we are so grateful for your contributions to the arts.
