In collaboration with Mixit, this evening will explore the intersection between the arts and activism.

How can the arts bring about positive social change? At what point does the artist become an activist? The Why Art Matters series seeks to explore the role of the arts in our society and to unpack some of the many reasons why art does in fact matter.

Join us for the final talk in the Why Art Matters series for 2018. Hang out in our historic building afterhours, view current works on show and hear from an expert panel.

Speakers Wendy Preston, Director of Mixit Charitable Trust and Nina Finigan, Curator, will be joined by other experts in their respective fields. The discussion will be chaired by Elisabeth Vaneveld, inaugural Director: Creative Entrepreneurship, Faculty of Creative Arts & Industries, University of Auckland.

Homestead will be open before the talk serving light meals and drinks.

Order of events:
5.30pm: Galleries open + refreshments available from Homestead Eatery
6.30–8pm: Presentations, conversations and questions
8.30pm: Doors close
