Rose Centre's new artworks stolen

With a grant from the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board, The Rose Centre teamed up with the locally based group Youth Arts (youtharts.co.nz) to deliver a public artwork.

This artwork comprised hangings mounted on the side of The Rose Centre in Belmont. Printed and installed by a local company, the banners were designed by four local youth artists and were installed on Friday June 5.

They were promptly stolen. The Rose Centre and Youth Arts are now appealing across the area for help in finding them. There’s a high chance they’ve been cast aside by the vandals that took them, so we’re collectively asking people, specially in the Belmont and Bayswater area, to watch out for them and report them to The Rose Centre on 09 445 9900 if sighted.

A photo of the banners on our wall is the one memory we have of this amazing work… for now.
