With a commitment to support te taiao/environment and mātauranga Māori world view through toi/art, artist WharehokaSmith (Taranaki Tuturu, Te Atiawa, Ngāruahine, Pākehā) leads a workshop where you will develop an informed art piece supported by dialogue utilising elements of toi Māori. Tools and materials provided. BYO visual journal or diary to capture dialogue or image notes during the workshop to inform your work.

WharehokaSmith's workshop is based on his work Kūreitanga II IV which was commissioned for the Govett-Brewster’s Todd Energy Learning Centre located at the heart of the building. Kūreitanga II IV is an interpretation of Pērā Hoki, an ancient waiata/karakia (song/prayer) which focuses on the significance of water to all life. The connection water creates between earth and sky is mirrored by the building, reaching from the floor to a skylight high above.

This event is part of Conservation Week 2019.
