Photos taken by the young students and photographers were displayed in a print and digital exhibition mounted in the windows of Nelson Provincial Museum, facing outwards to the viewing public.
Nelson Arts Festival 2021 launched the exhibition at a lively opening ceremony with speakers, a performance by the School’s Kapa Haka group and the inspiring students who took part in the project. Visited by hundreds of Festival-goers, students and the general public, the exhibition runs during the Festival 21 – 31 October 2021.
Aligning with its policy of caring for the environment, the Museum actively sourced eco-friendly material for the exhibition – enviro-board made of recycled plastic for the substrate; PVC-free recyclable for printing material; water-based latex printing ink – sourced from the only Carbon Positive signwriters in the top of the South Island. Also, recycling wastage material to make fence posts through “Future Posts”.
We are grateful to the Nelson Arts Festival for their ongoing commitment to the project as COVID-19 forced events to be cancelled from this year’s exciting festival programme.
