Two stage process

  1. The Asset Manager is the team in Council that manages the Council land or property where the proposed mural is to be installed. They decide if the proposed artwork is suitable for the Council asset. If it is, it goes to Arts Panel Approval.
  2. The Arts Panel Approval is a panel including a representative from Ngāti Toa Rangatira who assess if the art content is suitable for City location
