February 18 & 19 Caminiti will run a workshop entitled “Taonga Detriti: Caminiti (debris treasure with Caminiti ) at Kaan Zamaan. Ten special Northland children between the ages of 10 - 15 years of age will be selected to participate in a weekend workshop with the artist, the theme and emphasis of which will be recycling unwanted waste to create new artwork. Mr Caminiti, himself an orphan, will join the children and support team on Ti Tii marae for the weekend.

Caminiti has done similar workshops in American and elsewhere.

Bald Angels Charitable Trust are sourcing the appropriate children though Plunket, Te Hau Ora O Ngapui social services, educators, Woman’s refuge and are sponsoring the workshop. Volunteers will make up a support team to help with caring/feeding/entertaining the children after workshop hours.
