We invite artists/collectives/families/couples/throuples/makers residing anywhere in the world that have ancestral links to Moananui a Kiwa/Kiva/Moanakea (the Pacific Ocean) to express interest in creating a huge work that will be displayed on a billboard in London, UK.

 

The billboard is placed on the same road as the iconic VfD (owned and run by our aunty @lyallhakaraia) in Dalston, East London, and the concept is “a love letter to us” - a celebration and a visual expression of joy and aroha/alofa for our people, islands, moana.

 

Expressions of interest close May 31st 2021.  We will then review all submissions and select a concept/work/artist in early June.

 

The printing and installation will take place in London, all specs will be provided - in brief, the billboard is portrait and measures 2.9m x 4.4m.

 

The work will be shown for the month of September 2021!

 

The artist fee for this work is $500NZD (£250GBP)
