Celebrating our rainbow communities all year round

Generator acknowledge, celebrate, and show support for the LGBTQI+ communities during Pride 2023 and beyond.

We're excited to be collaborating again with activist, artist and curator, Shannon Novak on a multi site project throughout the portfolio. We loved seeing the impact of Shannon's artwork in previous years and are excited to share this years project with our communities.

This year the project is called Brightly Connected which celebrates Pride 2023 and beyond with the installation of bright and colourful artworks in selected sites managed by Generator in Tāmaki Makaurau.

Developed by Shannon in collaboration with local LGBTQI+ communities, these artworks are abstract representation of rainbow communities and the light these communities bring to the world. Interwoven shapes represent individuals and groups within rainbow communities that are closely connected to each other. These shapes use the colours from the original rainbow flag and its iterations as well as colours from many other flags used by rainbow communities.

You can find the full list of artwork locations listed below. Be sure to check them out.
