The Idea Collective

The Idea Collective is an artistic collaborative installation which recently opened at MOTAT. Celebrating New Zealand’s vibrant innovation culture, The Idea Collective brings together a diverse set of visionaries, artists, designers and technologists to create a range of exciting displays and experiences.

This is not a conventional museum exhibition, but rather a dynamic open space with a contemporary industrial design incorporating large graffiti murals. Perfect for product launches or a corporate dinner, this space can host up to 150 guests for a banquet or 250 in cocktail style arrangement.  

It features interactive sound, light and gaming elements and a Makerspace office. A dome like structure, The Bubble, currently houses a pop-up video arcade. The Idea Collective is available during the day under special circumstances and in the evening from 6pm until midnight for functions and events. MOTAT works with approved suppliers who can provide all catering and event requirements.
