The 2017 Laneway Festival was the first (and hopefully not the last!) to be in Albert Park in the heart of Auckland City.  A fantastic venue spread across multiple stages and plenty of room to spread out.

The Art Hunters

Art Hunters Online is a great example of using games and play as an engagement tool – in this case to encourage interaction with the Springfield Art Museum.  By incorporating an online medium they were able to reach out and involve a diverse range of ‘viewers’ and participants.
