Trumpet time! On August 25 at Te Papa Letting Space was the Arts and Culture category winner and the Supreme Winner at the Wellington Airport Regional Community Awards for Wellington City. We'd like to thank all the artists we've worked with over the last six years, and the hundreds of volunteers who have helped realised Letting Space public art projects and the Urban Dream Brokerage - this award is for you all. Its wonderful to get recognition as a contemporary art programme alongside so many amazing community organisations as we work to explore how artists can be agents of social change and work to make cities living spaces.
