Com­mu­nity in­vited to help cre­ate jun­gle

Waipa Post - - The Country -

A pa­per jun­gle will soon sprout up at Sanc­tu­ary Moun­tain Maun­gatau­tari and the com­mu­nity is in­vited to help build it.

The Jun­gle Within is a com­mu­nity arts project co-or­di­nated by artist Claudia Latis­nere.

The pa­per jun­gle will be part of an art in­stal­la­tion in­side the Sanc­tu­ary Moun­tain Maun­gatau­tari Vis­i­tor Cen­tre.

“The con­cept be­hind The Jun­gle Within fo­cuses on the things we would like to see grow­ing within our­selves and within our com­mu­nity,” Claudia says.

“It’s about get­ting to­gether and shar­ing our sto­ries, sto­ries about who we are and how we fit in the Waipa¯ .”

There will be sev­eral pa­per jun­gle-mak­ing work­shops led by Claudia, which the com­mu­nity is in­vited to at­tend.

The pat­terns and the ma­te­ri­als will be pro­vided and en­try is by op­tional ko¯ ha.

There are work­shops at the Pukea­tua Play­cen­tre on Thurs­day, July 5 from 5-7pm and Satur­day, July 21 from 11am-1pm.

There are also work­shops at the Rose­bank Art Cen­tre on Thurs­day, July 12 from 11am-1pm and Thurs­day, July 26 from 11am1pm.

The jun­gle will be con­structed in early Au­gust and opened in mid-Au­gust.

The project is sup­ported by Cre­ative New Zealand, Waipa¯ Dis­trict Coun­cil and Sanc­tu­ary Moun­tain Maun­gatau­tari.
