What frames your life? Home, work, friendship, family?

Frame Works has invited around 90 New Zealand artists to express the framework of life. The art works are based on a wooden frame which is 465x566x20mm, and while most finished works will be approximately that size, some may vary. From 22 April until 30 April 2017 you will be able to view the art works on a walkable trail from Britomart to AUT. Accompanying the listing and description of each art work in our auction is the location of the work on the trail. You can also download our trail app (www.stqry.co.nz and search for Frame Works) to get the location and information about each art work in sequence on the trail. Following the trail is a great way to see all the pieces - and possibly deciding which ones you would love to own!

Proceeds from the event will be donated to the Asylum Seeker Support Trust (ASST), which works with people like you and me, whose framework of home is destroyed by political instability or war.
ASST provides basic human needs such as accommodation, food, accessing medical care, education for children and English language classes to people who are seeking protection in New Zealand while they go through the legal process of applying to have their refugee status recognised.

Asylum Seeker Support Trust


ASST works to create a safe and supportive environment for all asylum seekers. We provide access to information, services and resources so asylum seekers may effectively pursue the determination of their refugee status, and thrive in their new home.
