This Valentine’s Week - see the love we never share, the feelings we withhold, or the feelings we forget to express, in an interactive exhibition at Auckland's Central City Library.

Come be a part of this project and discover more about this mysterious feeling through the experience of others.

Anonymously contribute a love letter you never sent, whether it was romantic love, unconditional friendship, love you never shared, or didn’t have time to. Rather than celebrating the commercialisation of Valentine's Day, what if we were to look at love in a more raw & authentic form?

Anyone can submit. You may submit at Auckland Central Library from Monday 5 February to Wednesday 14 February. There's a desk in the front window with paper, pens and pencils to write your letter, as well as a box to where you can submit them. We will try our hardest to exhibit all letters at the exhibition.

You may also submit them by sending it to: PO BOX 56025 Dominion Road 1024.

Please ensure they are anonymous.

The exhibition will be open to viewing from Mon 12 Feb to Fri 23 Feb.
