Pride at Precinct 2024

An exciting line up of Pride activations will be taking place throughout the portfolio this month.

Airbridge Artwork (1 Feb - 29 Feb), Auckland

Located in the Airbridge between Commercial Bay and HSBC tower, you'll find Dušo by Shannon Novak. Dušo celebrates the plurality of love. Dušo (which translates “sweetheart”) draws on traditional Croatian symbols, in particular, licitar hearts. These hearts are handmade decorated biscuits used as ornamental gifts to bring joy and celebrate love. Novak, who is Croatian, queers this traditional symbol in Dušo through unpicking, reconfiguring, and recolouring.
