Auckland Kinfolk Dinner May 2015

I’m so excited to share with you the images from my last Auckland, New Zealand Kinfolk dinner and gathering. This was the biggest gathering we have had to date in New Zealand with a large number of talented and hard working collaborators. The theme was “A Feast for the Eyes” and guests were treated to a gallery style dinner created by Eleanor Ozich, Hannah Horton and the team from Monday’s inside Silo 6 with the following feature artists. The event direction and style comes from Kinfolk Magazine in the USA and the events are produced in each location by Kinfolk event hosts (Myself & Shaye). Tickets are bought via the events section on the Kinfolk website. And you can find out more information here.

The Silos are a beautiful industrial space on the waterfront in Auckland which are used for community focused events. They are literally just a shell and don’t even have running water so the amount of effort and magic which went into preparing the space and the meal for our lucky guests was mind-blowing but because I was work with such clever detail focused individuals the process was seamless and we pulled it off without a hitch and a lot of laughs. See below the journey of transformation and then the wonderful dinner.

A huge heartfelt thank you to all of our talented partners, artists and guests who worked with us and made this truly inspiring event such a success. We could not have done it with out you…
