'Street Prints Mauao' Street Art Festival in Mount Maunganui

Pushing Arts in NZ Trust Presents Street Prints Mauao Street Art
Festival, Bought to You by Tect And Powerco.

Street Prints Mauao first came onto the scene back in December 2015 as Tauranga’s first Street Art Festival. With its successful Youth Mentoring program, Art Exhibition & Auction and the lasting impressions of 18 large scale murals left in the Streets of Downtown Mount Maunganui, the response has been overwhelming. So, we are coming back to do it again.

This year’s theme and murals will be based on the Maori proverb:

He aha te mea nui o te ao / What is the most important thing in the world?

He tāngata, he tāngata, he tāngata / Its the people, its the people, its the


With a core focus on community, youth engagement, creativity and beautifying our surroundings and with the help of 18 Artists from around the globe including Spain, Ireland, Canada, New York and Australia, Street Prints Mauao is one of New Zealand’s leading Street Art Festivals. With Live Street Art, Art Workshops, Art Tours, Art Exhibition, Art Talks and Entertainment, this FREE community event is definitely one not to be missed.

Supported by Resene, Tauranga City Council, Creative Bay of Plenty, Kennards Hire and Street Prints.
