Marc has worked with cities and communities across New Zealand and abroad.  His ‘hands on’ knowledge and depth of experience in the public art field has made a valuable contribution to the City of Rotorua during his tenure as Community/Public Arts Advisor.

During this time, Marc has been responsible for a range of public art initiatives including the creation of the ‘Sulphur Lake Sculpture Trail’ and his successful implementation of the first ‘percent-for-arts’ policy in New Zealand – an internationally recognized mechanism for funding public art.

Marc has an inherent ability to connect community with Council and stakeholders. He is frequently engaged by organizations, community groups and learning institutions to share his colourful experiences and successes – offering fresh insights and energy into the public art arena.
