Auckland Tourism, Events and Economic Development
ATEED – Auckland Tourism Events and Economic Development – are passionate about Auckland and Waiheke Island, and see Sculpture on the Gulf as New Zealand’s premier outdoor sculpture exhibition. As Steve Armitage at ATEED says: “This homegrown event provides the chance to showcase local talent on the stunning Waiheke Island.” ATEED are particularly excited about the fact that the Sculpture on the Gulf’s sculpture trail extends up near Oneroa village, which offers visitors the opportunity to discover more of Waiheke Island. Our Sculpture on the Gulf team agree with ATEED - we think Waiheke Island is pretty spectacular as well!
Our platinum partner, Fullers360, have been part of our Sculpture on the Gulf sponsor family since our event began back in 2003.  Fullers360 loves Waiheke as much as we do – and they see Sculpture on the Gulf as a great way to take in sculptures in a stunning Waiheke landscape while also  giving  you the chance to explore more of the island. They work with communities and events throughout the Hauraki Gulf, and we think it’s pretty special when a Fullers360 ferry cruises past our sculptures on the sculpture trail – it makes for a great photo!
Newstalk ZB
Newstalk ZB is Sculpture on the Gulf’s exclusive media partner, and what better match than a radio station which believes in credibility and debate. All visitors to Sculpture on the Gulf will have their own opinions on the power and beauty of the contemporary sculptures we feature in our Waiheke landscape. Just like Newstalk ZB, we invite discussion and debate. From Newstalk ZB’s pride in being New Zealand’s trusted source of news and information, Sculpture on the Gulf is proud to feature New Zealand artists showing never before seen work in a unique coastal landscape. Thanks Newstalk ZB for being our media partner!
Go Media
It’s not often that we work out Sculpture on the Gulf’s outdoor media campaign with the director of the company at one of the local cafes, and find out that he was involved with the concept of one of our sculptures back in 2013! Yes, we could tell you that Go Media offers 433 billboards, 41 digital billboards and 657 bus backs for spreading the word, but you’ve probably already seen that. What we like about Go Media is that they love innovation, and like being vocal about local. We’re happy to spread the word for them – it’s great to partner with Go Media!
Foundation North
Sculpture on the Gulf wouldn’t happen without the support of community trusts and grants, and Foundation North has helped our 2019 event – for this we thank them. Foundation North holds in trust a pūtea, or endowment, of over a billion dollars which comes from the sale of the community’s shares in what was the Auckland Savings Bank. Foundation North’s vision is to enhance the lives of all of the people of Auckland and Northland, returning around $35 million in grants each year to not-for-profit groups. We’d like to think they’ve done that with Sculpture on the Gulf 2019.
