Paint Your Own Masterpiece – Assisted By Wine
QTies with Picasso potential, this one’s for you. Let those creative juices flow as you DIY your own masterpiece under the guidance of the experts – and wine. Popping up at a number of different venues around Auckland, this is your chance to get a paintbrush in your hand and test your skills. Is there anything better than art and wine? You’ll soon find out.


Silent Disco Through The City
Shimmy your way through the streets under Auckland’s city lights while listening to a carefully curated soundtrack which explores the themes of space, uncovering secrets and unlocking curiosity. If you’ve never done a silent disco, you haven’t lived. Dancing shoes at the ready.

Brighten up winter and paint your world in colour. Relax back in your creative haven where art electrifies walls and spaces at QT Auckland.
