Tamsin Cooper got the nod to be the Urban Dream Brokerage creative projects and commercial sites broker and will be part of a panel selecting artworks to liven up under-used CBD spaces around the city.
Ms Cooper said she was looking forward to starting the part-time role from today.
''I've always been really, really interested in working in public art,'' she said.
''I think I'll bring lots of passion and motivation [to the role].''
Ms Cooper had been in positions like this in previous years, including being community arts adviser for Dunedin in the 90s.
''At the moment I'm really looking forward to finding the amazing ideas that are already out there.
''I'm looking forward to the ideas coming across the table.''
Ms Cooper said the biggest challenge she faced was having too many ideas to choose from as they were looking at ''just one or two great projects'' by the end of the year.
National public art organisation Letting Space runs Urban Dream Brokerage and co-director Sophie Jerram was excited about the appointment.
''It is a bit of a coup to be able to work with someone as experienced as Tamsin Cooper.
''Tamsin is a dream broker for getting rapid action in this terrific city.''
People with ideas for projects should contact Ms Cooper or Letting Space directly.
