We are four creative women who have just returned from India (in September) where we created our very own 'heart project'. We are made up of Hayley King (aka Flox, stencil and street artist), Cathy Pope (jewellery designer), Ema Frost (artist) and Sacha Stejko (photographer) and we've spent the last 9 months planning a self-funded adventure to find some 'soul food' for our work.

Our mission was to travel to India and experience a new culture, share our skills with children in need and then create some epic street art. The ultimate goal was to find inspiration for each of our practices and share knowledge with each other. We would then return to NZ and create the new work and exhibit it (we are booked into Allpress Gallery Dec 6-10), sell it and donate a portion of sales back to kids in need in both NZ (via Kidscan) and to the children who we worked with at Badi Primary School in India.

We received incredible feedback from the local Indian Community in Udaipur for the generosity of our time, skills and artwork. They'd never seen contemporary street art in Udaipur before, especially featuring Indian flora, fauna and animals. We made the tv news and multiple newspapers and blogs. We were so excited and inspired by our experience that we've decided to recreate the same wall in our hometown but even bigger!

We are making a real day of it so lease come and join us for lots of fun and watch us bring a boring carpark wall to life. We'll have an art area for kids to colour in Flox and Ema Frost artworks, we'll have face painting, plus a food truck.

It'll be such a fun day and we'd love to see you all there! We'll be raising money for Kidscan so it'll be good vibes for a good cause!
