From April-May 2019, Enjoy will be relocating to our new home at
211 Left Bank.
After fifteen years at Level 1, 147 Cuba Street, Enjoy's new
space will enable us to continue our mission of nurturing,
challenging and supporting contemporary art practitioners and
audiences as we look to the future. With almost triple the floor
space of our current location, the ground-level, 150 square meter
site will enhance Enjoy's visibility, accessibility and artistic
The new space will feature spatial design by Whare Timu of First
Light Studio architects, including a dedicated reading room and
multi-use space for gatherings, discussion and research. We're
excited about the potential of this room as a valuable community
resource that enhances Enjoy's long standing focus on contemporary
art publishing and discourse.
Enjoy has been busy fundraising to make our relocation project
possible, and now we're asking for you to join us. We need $5000 to
furnish the community reading room and multi-purpose space into a
functional and welcoming hangout area for you and others like you.
Your support will go towards:
- The centerpiece of the room, a large custom-designed table where
people can gather, work and discuss (with tea and coffee-making
facilities located nearby!)
- Comfy seating for workshops, gatherings and everyday use
- Shelving to house the library and archive, enabling us to
activate and expand these resources.
Until now, Enjoy has often needed to pause exhibition programming
to hold onsite workshops, the archive has been stored haphazardly
in a cupboard alongside tools, paint and technology, and the
library has far outgrown its current shelving with limited space
for visitors to use it. A larger dedicated space offers an
opportunity to expand Enjoy's public programmes, care for the
collections of artist-led publishing and contemporary art ephemera
from Aotearoa and beyond, and to make them more accessible for you;
artists, art enthusiasts, students, researchers and the
This is your chance to take part in an exciting time of
development for Enjoy and help to establish a new space for you and
the community to enjoy for years to come. All donations are
appreciated, all social media shares are commended and we thank you
kindly for your support!
