Wellness Weekend

Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 February

What is a lemniscate? How is colour used in healing? Do you believe in a life beyond the visible world? What is art’s true purpose? Can art enhance your wellbeing?  Also: do you want to get married in Civic Square on February 13th?


Across this weekend, we invite our audience to enjoy different experiential approaches to the spiritual worlds evoked in Hilma af Klint: The Secret Paintings. Our wellness focused events include a guided meditation, a tour about colour, symbol and spirituality, and an art therapy workshop in which participants can create their own work in response to Hilma af Klint: The Secret Paintings.  City Gallery Wellington’s Wellness Weekend ends on a spiritual high – don a wedding gown, veil or ceremonial frock get married in Civic Square TO YOURSELF.
