Artweek 2016 was a phenomenal success that brought Aucklanders together for a terrific week of art and creativity. 
Here's a round-up of some of the amazing events from 2016's event: 
Late Night Art Presents: Street Art Dego 
As a part of Late Night Art, Khartoum Place was transformed into a foodie mecca where five of New Zealand's best-known artists teamed up with five of Auckland's best food vendors to bring unique food art offerings to life.  
Renowned New Zealand artist Peter Roche presented his new installation Asylum at Silo Park this year. Spread across the six silos, the six-part installation utilised unique elements such as wind, water, sound, light and movement to offer commentary on dark themes that are currently affecting the world. 
Changing Lanes 
Six creative projects filled out the central city's urban space in six different laneways including Durham Lane, Durham Street West, Vulcan Lane, St Matthews In The City, Corner Kingston and Albert Streets and Exchange Lane. 
Auckland Transport City Art Walks 
Fun was had by many at this year's series of art walks that explored diverse forms of art and creative expression. 
Late Night Art: Arting Zones 
Students from University of Auckland's School of Architecture and Planning came together to present a work of creative and interactive pop-up installations around six partlets dotted throughout the central city.  Installations included 'The Recycled Playhouse', 'The Real Pyramid Schemer' and 'The Paper Fort'.
