Colour­ful show for a good cause

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

As part of its diploma cur­ricu­lum, Te Wananga o Aotearoa art stu­dents are re­quired to en­gage in a group task.

This year, the art classes de­cided to team up and run a wear­able arts show.

The task was a fundrais­ing event for the Cloud 9 Chil­dren’s Foun­da­tion, a com­mu­nity- led foun­da­tion that runs pro­grammes/events for chil­dren with Asperger’s syn­drome.

The project was a joint ven­ture be­tween visual arts and weav­ing classes and stu­dents cre­ated wear­able looks that were ex­hib­ited on the night. Pro­ceeds from ticket/art sales go to­ward the Cloud 9 Chil­dren’s Foun­da­tion. The night was a huge suc­cess with a mas­sive turnout.

Stu­dents, teach­ers and Cloud 9’s Bill Mur­ray were pleased with the show.
