Arts patron, philanthropist and entrepeneur Chris Parkin, the man behind the $20,000 Parkin Drawing Prize (just announced) and a fabulous hotel art collection, who has just donated $1 million towards the planned national music centre in Civic Square Wellington, and recently donated $120000 towards strengthening arts crowdfunding platform Boosted.
