Summer Sampler

After a year of COVID-related postponements and cancellations across our community, the Wellington City Council contacted us with the perfect challenge: activate a public space with live art in a way that is engaging, accessible, and can be safely socially distanced.

For the last two summers, we’ve filled the waterfront with over eighty performances, roving artists, and interactive events. In the process, we’ve curated one of summer’s longest publicly accessible arts events in Wellington.

This year we’re thrilled to return for a third season and help raise funds for the Wellington Free Ambulance.

“I was incredibly impressed by Spark & Flare’s professionalism and adaptability managing our event. With assured care they shifted to meet the challenge of a changing COVID-19 alert system with short notice and with confidence. Their focus on Health and Safety for both the artists and the public whilst continuing to deliver an engaging programme was impeccable. Overall, Spark & Flare were able to deliver eight incredible weekends, and I could not have been more delighted with their results.”
