The Performance Arcade brings together visual arts and performance in a specially curated ‘exhibition-event’ of live art practices on Wellington Waterfront. An arrangement of shipping containers and scaffold structures provides a temporary architecture for this unique project, housing a bar space, a programme of live music and events, and new performance installations by NZ and International artists. Open 13 hours a day, this event is free to the Wellington public.

Franco Lora –  Born and raised in Cali - Colombia, Franco moved to Wellington to find his “Porpoise”. Achieving his Masters of Design at Massey University in 2016, he insists he owes much of it’s completion to Amelia Taverner. Forever indebted to her, he now works as The Performance Arcade’s Graphic Designer. When he’s not designing for the Live Press or calling his mum in Colombia, he is taking Hae-In out on “muy caliente” dates around New Zealand.

His graphic novel “I’m not from here” and other illustrations are available for purchase through his Patreon page
