ToitŪ te NgĀhere: Art in Schools for Forest Health

Students of two Tāmaki Makaurau schools share their artworks about ngāhere ora / forest health. The exhibition is co-created with year 5-6 students as part of a collaborative research project. The children explore the implications for their communities of kauri dieback (caused by Phytopthora agathidicida), and myrtle rust (Austropucinia psidii). Through art, science, and mātauranga Māori, the students find ways to contribute to ngāhere ora as kaitiaki, leading creative actions for social and ecological engagement in their schools and communities.

Toitū te Ngāhere: Art in Schools for Forest Health is part of Mobilising for Action within the Biological Heritage National Science Challenge programme, Ngā Rākau Taketake.

13 August – 25 September 2022



Students from Kelston Intermediate explore connection to whenua and rangatiratanga through making with uku (clay), a medium with a long history of use in the Kelston area. In this collaborative exhibition, they present a collection of hand-coiled kaitiaki forms, and sculpted pūtangitangi (flute) instruments. 
This project has been supported by leading ceramic artist Carla Ruka through the Ministry of Education’s Creatives in Schools programme. 

1 October 2022 – February 2023
