YOU CALL THIS ART is a partnership with Awa Press and Radio New Zealand National. Artists respond to questions on how to engage with and understand their work.

The Arts Foundation launched a new touring show this year called YOU CALL THIS ART. We travelled to Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch and we took Radio New Zealand with us. Enjoy performances from artists and their illuminating discussion.  The events were chaired by Paul Bushnell who also edited the programmes.
