City Centre ArtWalk

A joint project by Make/Shift Spaces and The Suter Art Gallery Te Aratoi o Whakatū,
ArtWalk is a series of artworks on walls around central Nelson.

It's been an incredible process reproducing all the ArtWalk artworks to a high standard - here's a look behind the scenes at Speedy Signs.

What is Make/Shift Spaces?

Make/Shift Spaces works with a whole range of artists, creatives, community and special interest groups to fill spaces with vibrant installations and activity. We also use some of the spaces to tell stories about our community, with window displays and images.

The duration for each installation will vary - some may be weeks, others may be there for months. It depends on what the project is, as well as how long the space is available.

The best thing to do is start looking through the website!
