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.


In 2019, New Zealand will mark 250 years since the first meetings between Māori and Pākehā during James Cook and the Endeavour’s 1769 voyage to Aotearoa New Zealand. Tuia – Encounters 250 will acknowledge this pivotal moment in our nation’s history as well as the extraordinary feats of Pacific voyagers who reached and settled in Aotearoa many years earlier.
