We are two of 13 Kiwi artists jules www.juleshuntphotoart.com & carrie www.carrieburkenzartist.com who have been selected to represent NZ at the first ever World Art Games in Croatia in 2013. NZ is one of 54 countries attending from all over the world, there a 51 creative categories with hundreds of artists exhibiting their talents over four cities for 2 weeks in Croatia from June 29th -July 10th.
The World Art Games is a Bi-annual event with both national and international media coverage being broadcast around the world for the period of the games (just like the olympics) the next games is currently under proposal to be held in Hong Kong in 2015. The aim is to take kiwi artists work to install and exhibit on an international platform in the hope that we can create global opportunities such as residencies, painters colony's, sculpture symposiums etc for kiwi artists.
Croatia is the International H.Q for WAG and each country registered to attend will have access to their own working studio for the 2year period between each World Art Games event. We are really excited about the opportunities this will present not only for ourselves as artists but all NZ artists across the board. We are seeking pledge's to support us to pay for the WAG registration fees to cover accomodation, transportation costs and meals during the event. We will also be doing what we can to fundraise for our other costs to get there, if you would like more information on what we are doing check out http://www.wagteamnz.com/ thank you so much for all your support.
Thankyou very much
