Speakers from the diverse industries shaping our future come together to present their version of ‘what next’ for Auckland.
Auckland Art Gallery’s major exhibition, Civilisation, Photography, Now illustrates our increasingly global and connected society. It encourages viewers to consider not just the places we inhabit, but also the ways we consume, the relationships we maintain, the adventures we dream of and the technology we’re yet to imagine. What does this all mean for us in Tāmaki Makaurau? And what, now, does this mean for us as a society in light of a global pandemic? What does our future look like?
From architecture to leisure, marketing to sustainability, urban planning to global travel, our speakers will be talking about their ideal future for Tāmaki Makaurau. Within their presentations, they’ll highlight a selection of works from the exhibition, using these powerful images as a departure point for a wider conversation about Auckland, now and in the next decades.
With the Gallery open late you’ll be able to view the full extent of this exhibition and explore the wider programme of events for Artweek Auckland.
This event has a limited capacity. To ensure the safety of others, we will be contact tracing and it is necessary to register for a ticket prior to entry.
Tickets for this event will be available from Mon 21 Sep onwards.
