Tuia Te Muka Tangata Ki Uta: Shared Futures
Saturday, November 16 to January 2020
Tuia 250 Encounters Marlborough Children's Art Exhibition.
Dual Heritage - Shared Future
He rae ki te rae, he ihu ki te ihu, te hau ka rere, te ha ka tau
A meeting of peoples, a mixing of cultures, a blending of heritage, a sharing of future.
An exhibition of work created at the school art extension Jarratt Create and Educate workshops will be on show at the public art gallery from 16 November.
Activities and public programmes for children will be offered with the exhibition.
In July 2019 Year 5-8 Marlborough students were nominated by their schools to attend curriculum-based Tuia 250 - Encounters themed art workshops.
These workshops led Peter and Ellen Jarratt from Create and Educate were centred on local stories written by Rina Pinker.
Work produced at the workshops forms the heart of a special exhibition at the public art gallery on at the time when we are commemorating Tuia 250 - Encounters in our region.
