Through the Eye of the Lens – Tāmaki Makaurau
In collaboration with Te Ahurei Toi o Tāmaki | Auckland Arts Festival (AAF), 9 – 26 March 2023
Thought-provoking images and ideas by rangatahi are uplifted by scientists, educators and artists in this collaboration addressing climate change through the camera lens of our youth.
In the sixth collaboration in the series around Aotearoa New Zealand rangatahi from across Tāmaki Makaurau are invited to share their views on climate change through a group photography exhibition. Participants have been gifted digital cameras to spark their creative vision, alongside the opportunity to workshop environmental issues with leading climate scientist Professor Tim Naish; dive into mātauranga Māori with artist/educator Dr Natalie Robertson, and receive mentorship from professional photographers Raymond Sagapolutele and Cherrilee Fuller. An exhibition of their art and a call to action towards a resilient, carbon neutral future will be on display during the Festival from 9 -26 March in Aotea Square, Waitākere Central Library and Sir Edmund Hillary Library (Papakura) and online, here on Track Zero’s website.
Follow us on social media and AAF for more detail as this exciting project unfolds.
