Bradley Lane celebrates 10 years Bradley Lane celebrates 10 years

As Auckland’s longest-running street art festival, 2022 marked the 10th annual Bradley Lane Project, sharing local art with the community.

TGTB Charitable Trust is the main driving force behind the Bradley Lane Project, and with the support from local organisations such as Tāmaki Regeneration Company, Maungakiekie Tāmaki Local Board, and Glen Innes Business Association, the outdoor mural festival grows from strength to strength, weaving a tapestry of colours, stories, and inspiration that captures the hearts of locals and visitors alike.

Throughout the decade, 39 artists have painted 49 outdoor murals – with 39 on display throughout the Glen Innes town
centre. Every year, new artists are invited to add to the existing murals during the festival, which also includes an exciting event programme featuring a mixture of live painting, an art exhibition, street art tours, workshops, art activities, live music,
and more.

To celebrate its tenth year, the traditional three-day festival was replaced with an innovative programme that spanned five months, with one new mural painted every month from October until February.

In January, our Sunday Session event included free live music and performances, a free BBQ, face-painting and a bouncy castle for kids, a 3x3 youth basketball tournament organised by GI Eagles, and the opening of our annual Bradley Lane

Project art exhibition, hosted by The Good The Bad Gallery and Te Oro. The laneway was packed as hundreds of people
came to take part.

The new TGTB Charitable Trust Director and artist, Claudine Mailei, was born and raised in Glen Innes and first joined the Bradley Lane project in 2016 as a youth artist assistant.

“When I first joined the Bradley Lane project, I started off as a mural assistant, then helped with odd jobs like running social
media accounts, graphic design and gallery assistant. Then in 2019 I was asked to be a featured artist, and now my mural is
behind the Salvation Army.”

This year the festival will take place for three months from October to December. For more info on the Bradley Lane Project and to view the murals online, visit
