Arts Advisors

The Trust has a panel of arts professionals who assist in our selection processes. The panel currently comprises arts practitioners, the director of the City Gallery, curators and an architect. Urban design and public safety advice is provided by the Wellington City Council’s liaison officer.

Our current Arts Advisors are:

Gerald Parsonson (Architect, Parsonson Architects)

Elizabeth Thomson (Artist)

Reuben Friend (Director, Pātaka)

Charlotte Davy (Senior Curator, Te Papa Tongarewa)



The Trust also has honorary advisers separate from its arts advisers to broaden its resources. These people have expertise in fields such as engineering, financial management and law. All our advisers are listed in the Directory.
