Well heeled - Arts Access Conference Painted Shoes Exhibition

Parliament steps have been traversed by many well heeled famous feet since they were constructed, but for the first time they have also hosted over 600 shoes painted in a myriad of Resene colours.

Arts Access Conference Painted Shoes Exhibition

A key part of the National Arts Access Conference was the decoration of a pair of shoes using Resene testpots. Each participant was asked to bring a pair of old shoes to paint, then they were all let loose with Resene Quick Dry Primer and hundreds of Resene testpots. The finished shoes were brought together side by side and step by step to create a large art exhibit on the steps of Parliament.

Arts Access exists to provide access to the arts for individuals who would otherwise lack access to them and is particularly focused on the youth, refugee, health, disability and justice sectors. The show exhibition was an ideal way for all participants to express their artistry and be part of a large art installation.
