Specialist creative agency Raydar, in conjunction with The Designers Institute of New Zealand (DINZ), present Moonlight, an exhibition to help cultivate the New Zealand creative community.

The event will be held at Allpress Studio and feature work from 12 selected students and 12 established industry creatives. The exhibition is based on the premise that some of the brightest work happens after the sun goes down and will reveal a unique side of creativity through ‘moonlight projects’ - personal work created beyond the boundaries of the day.

"At Raydar we believe that creativity connects people, and that sometimes the best ideas come from the most unexpected places. So, we’ve created a platform to both celebrate original creative expression and to connect new talent with professionals," Nick McFarlane, Design Director at Raydar and producer of Moonlight says.

Students are currently able to submit their work for consideration through Ello, a platform for connecting and supporting a global community of artists. The Moonlight Ello page has already received an incredible 10 million views, providing the artists with immense international exposure. Proceeds of artwork sold will be equally split between the artists and a DINZ fund for future creative collaboration events.

The 12 established professionals will each select one student from submission and go on to provide advice, feedback and mentoring to their chosen student through the event. Some of the established artists taking include; Nick McFarlane, Raydar, Mike Davison, Colenso BBDO, Kelly Thompson, Maker’s Mgmt and Jessica Mentis ‘The Jellyologist’.

Moonlight will be open to the public at:

Allpress Studio, 8 Drake Street, Freemans Bay

3rd - 13th July, 7am - 3:30pm
