Devonport and Silo Park are illuminated from 9th – 13th October for Artweek. One hundred thirty students made up more than 30 teams in a competition to be chosen to display their final projects for the public.

The theme ‘GLOW’ serves as inspiration for the installations, while also highlighting the use of sustainable materials, zero waste and the collaborative effort to create a work of architectural art that can be enjoyed by a diverse audience.

Each location has a unique set of instalments that will guide the public through their journey of the GLOW@Artweek exhibition. This dazzling, free exhibition is not to be missed.

Devonport - A never ending discovery

Wonderful heritage buildings, spectacular scenery, stunning beaches... Devonport, the beautiful village by the sea has it all, and at just 10 minutes ferry ride from Auckland’s CBD it is wonderfully easy to visit.

You’ll fall in love with Devonport from the moment you arrive; in fact you may never want to leave! It’s no wonder that Devonport rates so highly on nearly every Kiwi’s “must-do” list and it’s the 4th most visited destination in the Auckland region.

Surrounded by the stunning waters of the Waitemata Harbour, Devonport is blessed with boundless natural beauty, from the twin volcanic cones of Mount Victoria and North Head, offering some of the most spectacular views in Auckland, to its superb, safe white sand beaches.

Experience the art galleries, cafes, boutique shopping, the history and the delights of all that Devonport has to offer.

Auckland is the world’s 5th most liveable city* and Devonport is Auckland’s Crown Jewel. So come on over... you’ll love it!
