The Art Attack Mural Project 

The Art Attack Mural Project

The Art Attack mural project is a 10-12 month opportunity to exhibit your talents within a temporary space. The Te Awamutu Museum is the oldest Museum in the Waikato, established in 1935 by forward thinking kaitiaki of the Waipā district’s social history.

You will need to possess a creative mindset, great talking skills, excellent ability to work safely, and the flair to work in with visitor inquiries. This is an ongoing creative opportunity with the first mural to be scheduled in time for summer with confirmation of dates to be negotiated upon application.
If you’re excited to attack our walls with art, email Henriata.Nicholas@waipadc.govt.nz today or download more information here.
