Enjoy Public Art Gallery



Enjoy Public Art Gallery is now calling for proposals for our 2018 programme. As an independent art space dedicated to experimental and non-commercial work, we are seeking a diverse range of project proposals that are rigorous and explorative in nature. We welcome submissions for:

  • Solo or group exhibitions from artists
  • Curatorial projects
  • Offsite projects and/or experimental exhibition formats

All proposals should be for new work that has not been presented elsewhere. Projects will be selected based on their quality and relevance to the communities Enjoy serves, as well as how they fit within the overall balance of the gallery's programming. You can read more about Enjoy's mission and vision here.



Please read the following information carefully before downloading and completing the application form, which includes further details on what to include and how to submit your proposal.

The closing date for applications is Sunday 20th August 2017. You will receive an email confirming that your proposal has been received within 2 working days of sending it, and you will be notified of the outcome of your submission by 31 October 2017.



Successful proposals will be scheduled between January and November 2018. If selected, practitioners will work closely with Enjoy Staff and receive feedback and logistical support towards their project. All artists/curators are required to sign an agreement and set realistic goals and timelines for their project in conversation with Enjoy’s Curator.

Enjoy provides modest artist or curator fees, rent-free attended gallery space, assistance with marketing and promotion and a limited selection of tools and equipment. Please note that you will need to cover the costs of production and any additional equipment, freight, travel and accommodation. 

Enjoy calls for proposals once a year. There are opportunities to participate in programmes and events such as workshops, exhibition openings and other opportunities throughout the year. Join Enjoy’s mailing list to stay in the loop and be sure to find us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

For further details about the gallery and tips from the Wellington City Council on how to write a proposal, see below:


Through the year, Enjoy hosts a number of workshops with established practitioners that examine broader aspects of contemporary art, such as publishing, art criticism and curatorship. For full details on all our upcoming workshops and public programmes, see our Events page. 




Enjoy has a talented community of volunteers, and we're always looking for new and dedicated people to become involved. Our volunteer programme is structured around minding the gallery on Saturdays, which requires an interest in contemporary art, a small amount of reading on our current exhibitions and engaging with our visitors.

To apply, emailed the completed the application form provided below to Louise at comms@enjoy.org.nz
