LOVE LETTERS PRIDE ♥️

Celebrate Love & Diversity

LOVELETTERS 2023 is proud to be exhibiting this year in conjunction with the Auckland Pride Festival, which runs January 28 – March 11, 2023.

We invite you to join us, collaboratively or individually to exhibit, with the first exhibition kicking off at Nathan Homestead January 28, and then travelling to various spaces around New Zealand during 2023.

The collection will then be donated to the Te Kowhai Print Trust archives, housed in Whangarei, where it will be cherished and used for printing education.

This year, we also invite you to promote the sale of additional copies of your works to interested visitors.  The entry form provides a space for you to enter these details, should you wish to do so.

As always, we will be promoting the exhibition on social media, and we would love you to tag us in your process images, reels and stories @loveletters_letterpress  #lovelettersnz2023.

The LOVELETTERS team is excited to again offer the opportunity to promote print in Aotearoa, and we look forward to welcoming you to LOVELETTERS 2023.


Yours in print,

Team LOVELETTERS
Toni, Steve & Rebecca
