Attention Creatives!

Calling Christmas loving creatives! Enter your Christmas themed wearable art design (sketch) and you could be one of 20 creatives who will receive $500 and a mannequin to bring your designs to life. These creations will then be exhibited throughout the city centre this Christmas as part of the Downtown Tauranga Heart of Christmas Exhibition.

Inspired by Wearable Arts, this dynamic showcase of talent will provide the public with something very different and unique in Downtown Tauranga, celebrating Christmas and art through installation.

This is a fantastic paid opportunity to gain profiling, and exhibit your creative talent in a unique and dynamic way! It's also a great way to promote your brand, in a festive fashion.

Design submissions close: Wednesday 17th October
Confirmation of 20 artists: Friday 19th October by 5pm
Delivery: 18th – 19th November 2018

- Christmas themed
- Consideration of sustainability and use of recycled/upcycled materials
- Originality

- Registration with design sketches to be emailed to rose@creativebop.org.nz
