Depot Artspace is an open and inclusive creative community in Devonport, Auckland that encourages engagement in all art forms. Depot Artspace offers a variety of facilities, services and events that support the creative community including galleries, a professional development programme, publications, a recording studio and a design studio.
This Saturday between 2-3pm, The Depot Artspace will showcase Behind These Walls, a brief history which reveals some of the vast collection of works that adorned this city’s walls, and some that still do – although often hidden!
The exhibition will contain historical and contemporary images, biographic histories of a number of important artists and works, as well as a timeline and guide to Auckland’s Modernist Murals. Entry is Free.

You might be mistaken for thinking this is just another set of galleries but you would be wrong. This place also sports a great online community radio station called jam radio, a recording studio (has housed bands like the checks and white birds and lemons), practice spaces, a magazine and a bunch of really fantastic supporters of the arts in Auckland. Alongside the gallery activities, they offer a course which I was a part of called PACE which basically gives artists of all genres access to training and development while they are on a benefit seeking employment in the arts. I wouldn’t have completed my album without the help of the staff there. The business and arts skills I learned were invaluable. They are currently working on a research project looking at presenting icons of the arts in New Zealand history. And of course the gallery is always displaying something to delight in and there is a real community atmosphere to what goes on there. If you support the arts it’s worth making the short ferry ride over to check it all out for yourself.
