Every year, Kiwiburn chooses a different theme to inspire art on the Paddock. Ideas are suggested by the community then voted on by the Kiwiburn Arts Committee.

The 2020 art theme is Eclectic Decade

Jessie Smith explains her winning idea: “Ten year resource consent means that as long as we keep doing the mahi, we have ten years of treats to look forward to! What kinds of changes do you think we will see by Kiwiburn 2030 – in art, in culture, in self expression? Let’s make the 2020 burn an opportunity to envision what our wildest dreams can conjure up and set goals for the next Eclectic Decade of Burner activity and society in New Zealand!”
