Pride 2023 Elevate3895 Landscape

For 2023, Auckland Pride wanted to deepen our relationships and partnerships in Tāmaki Makaurau's arts sector - empowering a more authentic and abundant queer arts ecosystems that nurtures emerging talent and elevates excellence. 

We did this through Pride Elevates, a curated programme of ten elevated works that supported over thirty artists in the 2023 Auckland Pride Festival.

From voguing and poetry to improv comedy and clay fisting, the range of disciplines represented was vast. Not to mention artists we managed to bring into the city from Wellington, Christchurch, and even Brussels. 

The funding for this programme was made possible by support from Electric Kiwi and the generous donations from our community via Boosted.
