The Creative Spaces Capsule Project is a collaborate national
art exhibition, which brings Creative Spaces and their communities
closer together to celebrate outsider art.
Creative spaces are organisations where people are supported to
make art, or participate in artistic activities such as theatre,
dance, music, film and creative writing. They provide space,
resources and assistance in ways that will lead to self-expression,
empowerment and self-development.
Beginning in Invercargill the 'Capsule' of work will visit 15
creative spaces over 8 cities as it skips up the country. At each
new space the exhibition will collect one more art work, until it
reaches 15 artworks in Auckland.
The Capsule will travel back via the Wellington and Dunedin
fringe festivals and finally end where it began, in Invercargill at
the Southland Festival of the Arts in April 2017.
Here is something that Arts Access Aotearoa said about the
Creative Spaces Capsule Project.
"The value and impact that these creative spaces have on their
local community is immense but not many people know of these
spaces. The Creative Spaces capsule project will raise a regional
and national awareness of the value of these creative spaces and
give them a platform to celebrate what they do and the quality of
art that is achieved by their artists."

support we've had so far for this project.
