Toihouora, Toihoutangata, Toihoukura Exhibition

Kia ora everybody,

I hope you are all keeping warm and busy… ready for the last week of the term. As we get closer to the holiday period, the closer we get to finishing another project, assessment, job or task set for us to challenge the way we think, do, believe and succeed in our everyday lives. I hope whatever decisions you make are for the embetterment of yourselves and your people for at the end of the day that is what matters – Live, love & laugh – you are precious.

So its been awhile, since I have written one blog after another – but I thought you might enjoy checking out the main event for some of us over the weekend – which was installing a range of artworks in different media in an exhibition from our School – Toihoukura inside of Pataka Gallery, Porirua, Wellington.

These artworks are on display till October and are a mix of Tutor and Student works from Toihoukura. If you are in Wellington over the holiday period its worth checking out.
