City of Colour 6 - 22 May 2022

News story
Monday 2 May 2022

City of Colour kicks off this Friday, marking a key moment in the city centre's recovery. It is created in partnership between Heart of the City, Auckland Council and a large number of other city centre partners.

Over 50 installations throughout the heart of the City and Karangahape Road will form a must-see trail of supersized art by day and magical light by night. City of Colour is co-curated by Angus Muir Design and Barbara Holloway of Auckland Council. 

Installations will be located all around the heart of the city - including the Viaduct, Britomart, Te Komititanga, Aotea Square, Vulcan Lane, Freyberg Square, Fort Street as well as Queen Street and more. Significant buildings and city centre landmarks will also be lit up to add to the atmosphere - including the Town Hall, The Civic, Sky Tower, Vector Lights on the Harbour Bridge, Lightship on Bledisloe Wharf and more.

Spread the word!
We'd love it if businesses can spread the word about City of Colour to maximise coverage and encourage people to visit.

We've got a dropbox of digital assets and suggested social media posts available here. 

Your involvement will supplement an advertising campaign that is currently underway across multiple social media platforms, Heart of the City channels, national print and radio platforms and digital adshels.
