Whau Holiday Art Programme

For this special edition of the Whau Holiday Art Programme, local artist Jimmy Ma’ia’i worked with students from Avondale Intermediate, Avondale Primary School and Avondale College Early Childhood Education Centre.

Te Whau awa was significant place where Māori gathered to cultivate food and gather kai moana, the many shell middens found there today a reminder of that time. Working with students from Avondale Intermediate, Avondale Primary School and Avondale College Early Childhood Education Centre, they are using picnic tables as canvases to tell stories together about kai.

After the picnic tables were completed, they were displayed at the Whau Arts Festival 2023, and then gifted back to each school to keep and use.
