Creative art is a gift
It is well known that creative art is a magical gift that enriches people’s lives. We combined with Toi Ora and The Cut Collective to work alongside Tāmaki locals Fabian, Shequille and Huva to produce art that would breathe life to the once empty space and deepen the community connection to the project. With a camera in hand, Fabian took to the streets of Glen Innes to hold open, generative dialogue with people about what wellbeing means to them, all to seal the conversation and moment in time with a photograph. This dialogue also then informed a graffiti installation which Fabian undertook with friends Huva and Shequille, alongside Ross Liew from the Cut Collective. Dropping by when the art was in progress, it was clear to see the boys were stoked to be handling cans and putting it to work live in an open public space. Next time you are in Panmure, pop into our Clifton Court bach and check out the creativity – we are truly grateful for everyone involved.
