The Lake House Arts Centre in association with the PumpHouse Theatre call for young Mural and Street Artists to create North Shore Summer Shakespeare inspired artwork – in competition and to be exhibited at the PumpHouse Outdoor Amphitheatre throughout the North Shore Summer Shakespeare Season.
The Lake House and the PumpHouse; two of the North Shore most unique visual and performance art spaces are collaborating to bring our community ‘Hitting the Boards’. This is a special project bringing together various community groups to create, share, exchange ideas and build a unique North Shore identity, as well as encourage aspiring artists. It is a tribute to Shakespeare, artist Raymond Boyce and the significance of community art and what it can achieve.
It’s been 401 years after William Shakespeare death- a genius, celebrated and still inspirational today. In the 1990’s Wellington artist Raymond Boyce designed four embroidered wall hangings for Shakespeare’s Globe in London’s Bankside. It was made by more than 500 skilled woman embroiders across New Zealand, - some even from the North Shore. This contribution, donating a set of embroidered hangings, made from New Zealand’s world famous wool, to adorn the frons scenae of the Globe Theatre stage, is a testament to the love for, and power of art to bring people together.
We are inviting young artists (ages 15-25) –to create “hangings” with an attitude. They will have the opportunity to see rehearsals from the show and meet with the North Shore Summer Shakespeare Directors and are set the challenge to respond to the production as well as the space, and engage with various influences of art and culture. We are inviting artists and students particularly interested in illustrative art, street art and theatre design to partake in this exciting project. For the chance to participate and have exclusive tutoring from a Street and Mural Art Mentor and Shakespeare Specialist.
Hitting the Boards is Proudly Supported by Auckland City Council and the Devonport/Takapuna Local Board.
