Ngā Atua Māori
North Hokianga Youth Visual Arts Exhibition
On display from 13th February to 3rd March 2016
Art has the role in education of helping children become more like themselves instead of more like everyone else.
The North Hokianga Cultural Arts Festival is held biannually. It is a celebration of Arts in the North Hokianga. We also believe that it is in the Arts where our tamariki can enhance their lives and express their voice through creativity. Every Kura is asked to perform an item on stage for 20 minutes. Performing Arts, Dance, Drama, Music.
This year our theme was ‘Te Ao Māori.’ We also have a Visual Arts section titled ‘Ngā Atua’ Every kura was given a mannequin to create an Atua Māori that was of significance to their Kura and environment. Anei te mahi taonga ō ngā kura ō Herekino, Panguru, Matihetihe, Hata Maria, Kohukohu, Broadwood
