Our Values

Zac Langdon-Pole

Sculpture on the Gulf is built on our values of:

Kaitiakitanga (Guardianship of the land)
Manaakitanga (Inclusivity)
Mana Toi (Creativity)
Mahi Tahi (Collaboration)

Kaitiakitanga/Guardianship of the land

We acknowledge that we are merely custodians of the land and abide by the principles of Kaitiakitanga – pledging to leave the people and nature, better for this sculpture experience.


We warmly welcome; the Waiheke community, friends, whānau, guests and people of all abilities to Waiheke to enjoy this unique event, their way.

Mana Toi/Creativity

We champion artists, the arts and people’s experience of art. We appreciate the multifaceted value the creativity of artists brings to our community.

Mahi Tahi/Collaboration

We collaborate with our artists, our community and our partners and supporters, to co-create successful outcomes for all.
