COMING SOON

We will be returning to the InterACT Disability Arts festival in Auckland for the 5th year running. We love the challenge of coming up with different projects that can be enjoyed by this very diverse and enthusiastic group.

We are looking forward to going back to Oamaru in November as part of their Victorian Féte. Our classic blue improv perfomances will draw passers-by directly into our Victorian themed murals, aided by pre-stencilled elements

We're also returning for the third "A Very Welly Christmas" on Lambton Quay 24-25 November where we'll install a new intricate and colourful 'Lotus Labyrinth' with live tape drawing around the perimeter.


RECENT HIGHLIGHTS
We were humbled to have won the Arts & Culture category (Porirua) for the Wellington Airport Regional Community Awards for the Porirua Kite Project last year.

We supported Pasifika artists to share their skills with young people, as part of a new arts day programme as part of Hutt’s very successful Polyfest.

We facilitated the making of a three-part community labyrinth that will celebrate local imagery and stories into a permanent re-installable labyrinth for the Hutt Winter Festival. It continues to be used in the Hutt valley for groups to use as part of celebrations and special occasions.

Happy to have work sent to Berlin and installed as part of the second Tape Art Convention last July. The piece had highly detailed colour patterns within a figurative stained glass composition.

We created our very first permanent painted mural in Lower Hutt called 'Hold Fast' . We still used improv tape drawing for people and added stencilled details of a myriad of cultural patterns within the flying figurative formation.

We were super excited to install a new work entitled 'Celestia Zealantis' for Cuba Dupa in Wellington late March. This was a large imaginary Star Chart with a whole bunch of constellations relevant to our local skies.

We ran workshops on Esplanade Day in Palmerston North recently : 'Bouquets, Beetles & Bees' let children old & young paint and tape flowers and insects on recycled pvc and added them to the collaborative art piece.

We returned to the Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival during a rather wet February, re-installing our 'Carp Diem' project.

We loved joining the fantastic Waitangi Day celebrations in Porirua where we installed a labyrinth enjoyed by huge crowds.
