Opportunity for Tararua artists

Published 24 Aug 2023

Chorus and Tararua District Council have partnered again this year to bring more cabinet art to Tararua and now is the time for artists to get designing. These cabinets become works of art, often telling stories about the communities in which they are located and help to discourage tagging.

Tararua has also been chosen as one of the towns nationwide to be part of the Rainbow cabinet art initiative. “Anyone can put forward a design, with the only stipulation that it has meaning and promotes diversity and inclusion,” Mrs Seddon says.

Requests for designs are open till 31 August and the winning design for each cabinet will be chosen by a Council panel from entries received. Signing-up and more information can be found on the Chorus dedicated webpage:


This initiative has proved so successful that the programme has been extended to include art works throughout the country.
