We’re pleased to let you know that we’re going to be holding the Whau Arts Hui on Saturday 27 June. Its an opportunity for people in the community who work or live in the Whau to get together and talk about things close to our hearts.
By coming together to meet and discuss our communities and the arts as well as share ideas we hope to strengthen the weave of the Whau and open up new friendships and opportunities for collaboration.
We also hope to collectively build a picture of what we want to achieve over the next year and into the future and what support we all need to do that.
The hui is structured like an unconference – which means the participants set the topics and run the sessions on the day. Come on the day with ideas, projects and issues to talk about the people there. The topics don’t have to be about the Whau or about the arts.
Unitec is supporting the Whau Arts Hui by providing us with lots of space to run different discussions.
Lunch will be provided by the WISE collective, and the Wash Against Waste Trailer will be on site to help us reduce our waste.
