RECENT HIGHLIGHTS

We ran tape & mask workshops at the InterACT Disability Arts Festival in Auckland for the fourth time. The theme this year was pretty cool - 'funtastical creatures, fantastical worlds'.

The Hawkes Bay Arts Festival last Sept saw us install a labyrinth in Havelock North, run workshops for local Flaxmere folks to make their own community labyrinth, and drew in central Napier as part of the White Night event.

The Porirua Kite Project came to a lovely conclusion with an installation at Pataka museum. From last November through this year we ran workshops with a wide range of community groups to design and create multi-cultural art kites. These were combined with portraits of locals and installed in various places in Porirua's CBD.

We are very proud to have shared a Community Partnerships Award bestowed by Arts Access Aotearoa recently at Parliament. This was for facilitating a mural created by disabled folks as part of the inaugural Disability Pride Week, along with Rachel Noble from Ennoble and Nga Taonga Sound and Vision.

Palmerston Norths Winter Festival hosted a new iteration of our Labyrinth on 29th & 30th June.

We installed UV lit fire dancers along the waterfront near Frank Kitts park when Wellington's waterfront came alive for the Fan Trail as part of the Lions rugby tour.

Last April In Darfield, Canterbury, we ran a school workshops for collaborative mural making, which coalesced into a temporary mural in the centre of the township, completed after our mural.

We returned to Nelson's Heritage Week where we celebrating themes of coming home through stories told through quilts. We installed colourful laminated cellophane quilt scenes and ran workshops creating community quilts in the Elma Turner Library.
