 PARK(ing) Day 2023 - CALL FOR PROPOSALS 

We are excited to announce the call for proposals for PARK(ing) Day 2023 is now open!

Submissions are due on 13 January 2023, with PARK(ing) Day itself scheduled for Saturday 4 March. The following Saturday 11 March is set aside in case of bad weather. 

We've also increased the contribution paid to participants to $500!

The mission of PARK(ing) Day is to call attention to the need for more urban open space, to generate critical debate around how public space is created and allocated, and to improve the quality of urban human habitat. We welcome submissions from creatives and community groups interested in taking over a Cuba Street car park for the course of one day.

Background

Usually held in the northern hemisphere in September, PARK(ing) Day is an annual open-source global event where citizens, artists and designers collaborate temporarily to transform metered parking spaces into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public places. The mission of PARK(ing) Day is to call attention to the need for more urban open space, to generate critical debate around how public space is used, created and allocated, and to improve the quality of urban human habitat … at least until the meter runs out! 

The original PARK(ing) Day concept was initiated by Rebar, www.rebargroup.org

The Wellington Sculpture Trust was established in 1983 and is a voluntary and independent charitable trust dedicated to enriching Wellington by providing contemporary innovative public art for the city.
