Cargo Bike Art Space : Dunedin Fringe Festival

Cargo Bike Art Space

Visual Art Moving Image Community

Cargo Bike Art Space moves through the streets of Ōtepoti celebrating a myriad of art forms and audience experience. Soundscapes, digital projections, moving image and unique puppet performances.

Cargo Bike Art Space debuted at Dunedin Fringe 2021 securing the award for most original event. This was a great opportunity of using the cargo bike as an artist space on the move. Artists have accessed different ways of using the bike; from using the container as an exhibiting space, to creating an audience experience in different public spaces. This project's kaupapa is to support the exploration of artists' processes, research and ideas without the confines of traditional gallery or institutional arenas.

Creaturepost in Tāmaki Makaurau whose technical and digital expertise is matched by their collaborative, imaginative flair for diverse art projects that include projects with LUMA, The Auckland Museum and the newly developed Christchurch Convention Centre.
