He pae kōrero ka puta he kōrero, he pae ātea ka puta he wawata
A speaker's bench produces a narrative, an open horizon creates a vision
Pae Ātea is a new public gallery that is set to become a familiar touchpoint of considered design and whakaaro, platformed nationwide on JCDecaux digital billboards across our urban landscape.

About Pae Ātea
Pae Ātea translates as ‘open horizon’. The name symbolises the creative freedom to express issues of identity and to celebrate connectivity – to one another, to a sense of place, and to our shared histories. Pae Ātea is a presentation of ideas, thoughts, and creative excellence. It is a curated programme, carefully considered to engage, challenge, and build a strengthened sense of individual and collective identity. Pae Ātea encourages a moment of pause and contemplation, encountered through pūrākau (iwi narratives), social histories, creative expression, and commentary. We are all bound by the environment we share, including the stories embedded in the land. Pae Ātea is an invitation for all of aotearoa to reconsider our connections to people and place, as a community of humans sharing a remote series of islands in the south pacific.
