Creative NZ awards Naomi McCleary

Naomi McCleary, Waitakere City Council’s Arts Manager, is the first recipient of an Outstanding Individual Contribution Award from Creative New Zealand for her services to the arts within the local government arena.

Presented at the Local Government Conference on Tuesday, McCleary’s work within the Council was acknowledged by Creative New Zealand’s Chief Executive Elizabeth Kerr.

“Thanks in large part to Naomi’s vision, passion and determination, artists are now an integral part of the design team for all new building projects in Waitakere City,” says Miss Kerr.

Traditionally Creative New Zealand presents awards to district and city councils however, due to Naomi’s long-standing dedication to arts at Waitakere City Council since 1992, an individual award was agreed upon.

Naomi’s award follows on from a 2002 Premier Creative Places Award presented to the Council for the Massey Leisure Centre that incorporates the work of 17 local artists, history and the environment.

The Premier Creative Places Award for 2004 went to Gore District Council for the refurbished Eastern Southland Gallery.
