SCANZ - Solar Circuit Aotearoa New Zealand

Planned for July 2006, SCANZ follows in the tradition of Solar Circuit and Polar Circuits. These events consisted of the gathering of diverse artists, curators and producers involved in contemporary practice with projects and activities intersecting the environment in some way. The full title of the event is Solar Circuit International New Media Workshop and Residency Aotearoa New Zealand, the first and largest such event to be held in Aotearoa New Zealand.
Taranaki New Zealand

SCANZ is hosted by the Western Institute of Technology at Taranaki. The region is building a profile as one with high cultural capital. Taranaki is significant in terms of human environment - it was the site for a peaceful protest movement under the guidance of Te Whiti, and important colonial events and clashes; home to Chew Chong who played an important role in business development regionally and nationally; and is the location of the mountain - Taranaki, part of Maori mythology and the second highest mountain peak in the North Island of Aotearoa New Zealand.
