The Wynyard Quarter Arts Series is produced in partnership with Waterfront Auckland and in conjunction with the inaugural Macquarie Private Wealth New Zealand Arts Awards. The series runs from 25 November to 11 December and will provide the public an opportunity to be involved in the celebration of New Zealand arts across disciplines.

Nine writers have donated phrases or poems for display in the Wynyard Quarter throughout the series. Words will be located on silos, walls, containers, a fishing boat and under sand. Writers include Arts Foundation Icons Patricia Grace, Margret Mahy and Hone Tuwhare, Laureates Kate de Goldi, Elizabeth Knox, Bill Manhire and Ian Wedde and New Generation recipient Eleanor Catton. There will also be words displayed from a 2011 Award recipient. However, this artist will not be credited until after the award announcement on 29 November.

The Arts Foundation Information Hub, in a red container located next to the Viaduct Events Centre, will be open during the series and if you want to find the writers words they will be dotted around the Wynyard Quarter.

People can learn about Arts Foundation Awards recipients and can view the TVNZ 7 series at the Information Hub, The Artists on LG smart TVs. The Information Hub will be the source of arts information about the Wynyard Quarter Arts Series and the Arts Foundation.
