Boon on Campus

16 - 20 November

The University of Waikato is proud to host the next Boon Street Art Festival taking place from 16 - 20 November.

The Boon on Campus festival will see five artists from Waikato and Bay of Plenty painting six murals around the Hamilton campus ranging between 2m-19m long. The week-long event will include activities for students, staff and the community to get involved including a grand unveiling for each mural on Friday 20 November.

The murals will bring a fresh and vibrant look to some of the University’s most visible teaching buildings, which largely have plain concrete facades, reflecting the era in which they were built.
