Celebrating Cultural Diversity & Helping Arts in New Zealand
VOX365NZ celebrates diversity in the arts by looking at the unique relationships creatives have with their art, cultural identity and community in NZ. VOX365NZ is a platform for creative collaborative spirit. Our aim is to achieve the following:
1) To discover underground creatives in New Zealand and create a platform where “established” and upcoming or underground artists can collaborate and exchange ideas, experiences – and possibly create something new and fresh.
2) To use multiple mediums to create a platform for creatives to showcase their work.
3) Create a useful and timely piece of knowledge that continues to evolve and share insight into the range and diversity of creatives in New Zealand.
4) Conduct a social research project to understand creatives’ relationship with the arts, and how their various cultural backgrounds may situate their position to practicing their art forms.
5) Promote cross cultural understanding by celebrating diversity in the arts.
6) Spark dialogue and initiative for artists to take progressive stances against community and social issues such as the problem of child poverty in New Zealand.
