OUR PARTNERS AND SPONSORSHIPS
It’s hard to believe that one destination can have some of the best and most unique wildlife viewing in the world, an impressive array of heritage, architecture and be home to world class fashion designers. We see partnerships as an important way for us to play a part in supporting Dunedin’s environment, local arts and culture. We believe that through these partnerships we can stay connected to our City and region as we will always be better together.
Our company and brand values provide us with a foundation that gives meaning to what we do. We will consider sponsorships that:
Align with our values
Support wellbeing of our community
Support and promote Dunedin
Applications will be reviewed and we will select partners for a 12-month period. To submit a sponsorship request, please complete the following online form.
ARTIST IN THE TERMINAL
JANUARY 2024 - APRIL 2024
Our current Artist in the Terminal is Sam Foley.
Rural Drift - A storm is coming
To put it simply, this body of work picks up the thread from my 2019 show 'Graff'. That series drew inspiration from the urban environs of Dunedin, Berlin and other overseas cities, where I have dwelt. Over the years since, I began to notice how graffiti seemed to be leaking out of the city-centres of the South Island and into the surrounding countryside. Hence the title of this collection 'Rural Drift'.
On many lengthy drives through the rural hinterland of our Deep South, I found myself sympathising with our farmers. In my mind and in the context of my own search for the subject, they are arguably getting hit on all sides. Heavier regulations soon to be implemented, climate change of which they are absolutely bearing the brunt, and then someone trespasses on their property to scratch something inane on the side of a barn. This is what the subtitle, ‘A storm is coming’, speaks to, and with these paintings I sought to capture a fringe social history.
From New Zealand, Foley exhibits internationally, with works placed in many public and private collections. From 2007 to 2018 he was a regular visitor to Europe, basing himself between Dunedin and Berlin, exhibiting throughout Europe and Scandinavia. In 2013 he was the recipient of the Kaipara Foundation Wallace Arts Trust Award which included a 4-month residency at the cultural centre Altes Spital in Solothurn Switzerland. Currently, he is happily ensconced with his family, back in his home city of Dunedin.
