What is Pop?

Pop makes fun, makes mischief, makes you think, makes you smile. Pop is you, Pop is us, Pop is Aucklanders having fun.

When is Pop?

Pop is an annual pop-up series that is happening from 1 – 25 March 2018, all around central Auckland. And Pop will also be popping up in the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu area from 26 March – 7 April 2018.

Who is Pop for?

Pop is for Aucklanders.

Who created Pop?

Pop is designed by Alt Group and is proudly supported by Auckland Council and the Waitematā Local Board to generate creativity, fun, and new experiences in Auckland.

Is Pop free?

Free as the birds and bees.

Is Pop art?


OK, explain.

Pop is an annual series of temporary art projects in public spaces, made for and by Aucklanders. Pop projects bring creativity and surprise to people in everyday places in Auckland.

Who supports Pop?

Pop is brought to you by Auckland Council as one of their regional arts and culture programmes. Waitematā Local Board supports inclusive communities that are vibrant, healthy and connected, and has generously funded Pop since it launched in 2014. Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board supports their community to be a place where everyone thrives and belongs, and has generously funded Pop since 2017..

Is Pop always outside?

Pop can happen anywhere. Sometimes a roof can be a tree canopy.

How do I hear about future Pop events and projects?

Stay in the loop on Facebook and Instagram.

How do I participate?

Enjoy public spaces in your city and neighbourhood by spending time with others – swing a poi,, strike a pose, take in the words, or playing some Pop Ping-Pong. You might even find that Pop finds you when you least expect it. Share the love online by using the #popakl hashtag.

Can information from this website be shared online?

Pop encourages you to spread the word. All we ask is that you credit #popakl when sharing any Pop project.
