Cargo Bike Art Space : Dunedin Fringe Festival

Cargo Bike Art Space

Cargo Bike Art Space brings artists and art to the streets, cycle ways and public spaces in Ōtepoti Dunedin.

Cargo Bike Art Space presents art-on-the-move around Ōtepoti Dunedin. Five artists over ten days of the festival will utilise the cargo space of the bike to create projects that can be easily relocated to different venues, parks and cycleways. The space itself may be small but with renowned local artists each project promises inovative works, diverse perspectives on public space, inclusivity, politics, and the environment. Bring your bike, ride with us, or meet up at specific locations over the festival.
