40 Years of Community Arts | Tenants & Shop Artists Exhibition
In 2020 Square Edge Arts Centre celebrates several milestone:
128 years since the original building opened
75 years since the current building opened
48 years of the Palmerston North Community Arts Council
20 Years since opening as an arts centre
16 years under Palmerston North Community Arts Council management.
The Palmerston North Community Arts Council (now trading as Square Edge Community Arts) was incorporated under the Incorporated Societies Act in as a trust in 1972. The organisation boasts an amazing program which dates as far back as the commissions for ‘Under the sun’ (1971) by Jenny McLeod, and ‘Te Papaioea’ (1973) by Ian McDonald.
Our Work primarily revolves around three core areas:
developing and delivering arts programs
working with artists and the community
managing the delivery of Square Edge as an Arts Centre
We celebrated this milestone with a weekend full of events and an excellent Square Edge Tenant and Shop Artist Exhibition.
