The (often) hidden art secrets of Grey Lynn

Grey Lynn 2030 June meeting was a celebration of the artistic talent in our community. A big thank you to all the artists and members of the art community who participated.

Art in the Dark

Celia, Kat and Adelle gave us a presentation on the inaugural Art in the Dark event exploring and exploding the ideas of ‘Community, Environment and Utopias’.
Under the cover of darkness, artists will address these core values while exploring the implications of mobility, night, sky and light. Art in the Dark is a collaboration between artists, businesses and community initiatives in the Grey Lynn and Ponsonby area to celebrate and foster community.

When the circus left town, we had a parade,

the band played on and floats were made.

I looked sideways as they passed,

these bits and pieces, they were the last.

We beat our chests

and cried out loud,

the Tui’s head looked dead, not proud.
