Event description
Join a guide on a free walking tour of the Wellington Chinese New Year Zodiac Art Trail.

About this Event

The Chinese New Year Zodiac Arts Trail seeks to map out the signs and animals of the Chinese zodiac through twelve original artworks by local Wellington and internationally-based artists in a walkable trail through Wellington’s CBD and waterfront.

Reflecting a contemporary Asian-Aotearoa New Zealand perspective, these new works will be created by a diverse group of artists with strong links to Asia and Aotearoa New Zealand.

Join a guide on a free walking tour of the trail, starting at the Wellington City Council shed on the corner of Cable and Barnett St (opposite Hot Sauce restaurant at the Museum Art Hotel), this trail will focus on the Chinese Zodiac signs that inspired each work.

The trail will kick off with a traditional Dragon Dance.

The walk is an easy 3.5km but we recommend that you wear comfortable footwear.

Please note spaces are limited to 30. Booking is essential.

A second trail has also been set up on 14 February and it will focus on the artists and their practice.

Supported by Asian Events Trust, Asia New Zealand Foundation & Wellington City Council
