Art in the Park has partnered with The Prince’s Trust Aotearoa New Zealand to offer  a unique opportunity for a young, aspiring kiwi artist to launch their career alongside  100 of the country's best talents at this year’s show (Sep 8th - 11th). One young  artist (18-30) who has completed The Prince’s Trust Aotearoa New Zealand’s short  and free Enterprise Programme workshop, will get the chance to have their own  dedicated exhibition at the Eden Park based show.  

This partnership is a call to young, aspiring artists to change their lives through the  mentorship and support of The Prince’s Trust Aotearoa New Zealand, and the once in-a-lifetime opportunity of launching their career at Art in the Park. - Sofija Matich,  Director, Art in the Park. 

The Prince’s Trust Aotearoa New Zealand’s Enterprise Programme builds on  entrepreneurial foundations and gives young taiohi some of the skills needed to  make a living doing what they love. For young creators unsure of how to  commercialise their venture, or without the financial resources to establish  themselves, this programme offers opportunities to secure funding as well as  important mentorship from experienced creators and entrepreneurs - including the  minds behind Art in the Park. 

The Prince’s Trust Aotearoa Chair, Andrew Williams says, “Young, creative people  who want to thrive and build sustainable lives sit at the centre of our mahi. Our  Partnership with Art in the Park provides an amazing opportunity for a young artist  to get their career started with mentoring, funding and a showcase spot at New  Zealand’s newest and most exciting art show.”

Art in the Park was 2021’s breakout art event, bursting onto the Auckland art scene  with a sell-out show. More than 11,000 people came to Eden park, queuing the  length of the stadium to meet and support over 100 of New Zealand’s artists.  Visitors bought the art they loved and immersed themselves in the country's diverse  artistic voices. 

Together, Art in the Park and The Prince’s Trust Aotearoa New Zealand are looking  to propel young New Zealand artists into the spotlight, and kick start their career.
