Other Projects:

In 2015 Jeppe Hein Long Modified Bench Waitemata Green was installed in the redevloped Waitemata Plaza. Originally commissioned as temporary installtion for the Edmiston Terrace over looking Albert Park for the re-opened Auckland Art Gallery, Jeppe Hein was invited to work closely with the Council and the Isthmus Group, the chosen landscape the designers to reinterpret his artwork as a permanent installation.

In 2009 as the art-coordinator of the Trust I worked with a team from the Voyager, New Zealand Maritime Museum to re-develop the Edmiston Gallery in the Museum. In November that year the gallery re-opened with a new look and new exhibitions.

2007-2010 Vinnes Art Box Coordinator

Held at Vinnies Restaurant on Jervois Road the event was designed as a programme of evenings where diners could enjoy a combination of art, fine food, wine and conversation. At each event guests were able to meet the exhibiting artist and hear them talk about their artwork.

1999-2006 Project Coordinator for Sculpture 2001

Sculpture 2001 was formed in February 1998, partly in response to the NZ Lotteries Board calls for submissions for Millennium Grant funding. The group goal is to promote public sculpture in the Auckland region. The artists wanted, "as residents of Auckland, to express in their work a reflection of Auckland's culture."

Eight of the sculptor members - Chiara Corbelletto, John Edgar, Charlotte Fisher, Fred Graham, Christine Hellyar, Neil Miller, Louise Purvis, and Greer Twiss conceived a project to install 8 new permanent sculptures in the Auckland Domain. The projected worked closely with Auckland City Council to meet their requirements for Public Art. It was the first artists' initiated project of its type in Auckland.

Between May 2004-December 2005 the sculptures were installed. On May the 5th, 2006 the completion of the project was celebrated with Prime Minister Rt. Hon. Helen Clark, Minister for Arts, Culture and Heritage as guest speaker.
