Artbank is a weekly arts magazine show run as a collective by artists and writers active in the Auckland arts community and beyond. We are independent of any art institutions, galleries or funding bodies. We therefore aim to provide a unique and engaged perspective with a view to proving our audience access to a few of the multiple voices of the arts communities in Aotearoa.
