Shining a light on creativity made after dark
Creativity doesn’t follow a schedule. It has no clock. It won’t sleep, it never stops. In fact, the Designers Institute of New Zealand believes some of the brightest work happens after the sun sets.
“Moonlight” is an initiative to inspire the New Zealand creative community by connecting emerging and established talent through a common passion: moonlight projects.
“The brief? There is none. But that’s the whole point. See, magic happens after the hours of 9-5; for many, that’s when true creative flare ignites, sparked only by personal passion. That’s the type of work we’re looking for.
Painting, pottery, knitting, photography; we want to see whatever it is that gets you out of bed in the morning, and keeps you out of it at night. Submissions can be anything, as long as they demonstrate passion, and it happened above and beyond your course work."
Not only will Moonlighting projects be seen by a global audience of millions on Ello, but 12 students will have the exclusive opportunity to have their passion project selected for the upcoming Moonlight exhibition at Allpress Gallery in Auckland. If selected, artists will also be individually mentored by a respected industry leader, in preparation for the exhibition – where their work will be displayed alongside that of the mentors’. This is available to New Zealand students only.
