One thing we are proud of, and good at, is working with our clients to bring their ideas and strategies to life.


Over the years we’ve discovered ‘Art for Purpose’ helps our clients to:

Drive Economic Development

Drive economic

Community Engagement
Formally and
informally educate
Price of Place
Build Pride
of Place
Celebrate history and create new legacies
Drive Economic Development

People linger longer and spend more which means local businesses and community benefit.


Create a destination. Strategic art projects get people stopping, staying, and talking and posting. Drive repeat visitation and draw expats back home.

Community Engagement

When people get involved, they become part of the story. Art projects get people talking and build connections and community.


Being involved in an art project builds confidence and skills. It helps expand networks and can provide opportunities and introductions.


Art projects create positive change, a safer and happier place. When you beautify a space, you beautify the behaviour.


Strategic art not only maintains history and commemorates legacies. It also creates memories and starts new legacies.

Art can take many forms, what is important is that it serves your purpose.

Many people come to us with an idea of what they want to achieve but don’t know how to reach their goals. That’s where we come in. Team Zest, lead by our Chief ARTchitect and Founder Andi Mether, approaches each project uniquely, collaboratively, and strategically.

We will consult with you and your stakeholders and develop a strategy that will deliver your objectives. We curate public art, provide artistic direction and artist management, prepare risk management plans, oversee budgets & logistics, as well as a creative process that delivers the best possible results.  We provide the expertise to fill the gap in your team.
