The Mosaic Association of Australia & New Zealand

The Mosaic Association of Australia and New Zealand was incorporated in March 2002 and has in excess of 850 members from around Australia, New Zealand, the United States, the United Kingdom, Singapore, Japan and elsewhere in the world.

Our Mission

MAANZ fosters creativity and community through the transformative power of mosaic art. We inspire individuals of all backgrounds to explore and experience the beauty of mosaic art, making a difference through exhibitions, conventions, education, and collaborative endeavours. Together, we cultivate a vibrant mosaic community that celebrates diversity and enriches lives.

We have three guiding stars that help shine the way to do what we do:

Mosaic Exhibitions
Mosaic Education 
Mosaics Making a Difference in the Community.

Each branch in Australia and NZ has a Branch Representative position, and local volunteers. Exhibitions, Mosaic Education and Mosaic Making A Difference in the Community events are run through the branch level.

Our big event – the National Symposium is held every two years.

Our next symposium is 14-18 November 2024 in Geelong, Victoria. Early bird bookings opened in January 2024. See our symposium page for more details.

2021 saw an online Symposium and exhibition, the theme Revolution/Evolution, and our keynote speaker was Julie Sperling.

The 2019 MAANZ symposium was hosted in Canberra in September 2019, entitled The Transformative Nature of Mosaics, held at University House, Australian National University, with keynote speaker Dr Claire Barnett.

In 2017, the Symposium was held in Tasmania with keynote speaker Toyoharu Kii.
