Whangarei Sculpture Symposium

March 21, 2018, 6 p.m.

The Whangarei Sculpture Symposium is a unique event held in Northland.  Its a popular event for the Whangarei community and is open to the public every day.

For 2018, The Theme is ‘Journey’. Based on first encounters, exploring and navigating, artists have been invited to create a form that relates to this theme. This year also inspired by the Sestercentennial 250th anniversary of the voyage of the Endeavour captained by Lieutenant James Cook, which commemorates his exploration of our coast. When life ends, life will begin anew whether it’s through reincarnation or the beginning of someone else’s journey, life continues on. These experiences can by physical, natural or historical influences which inspire the design of the sculpture.
