Growing the Future: ‘Reclaim’.
This works celebrates the wonder of the natural world and explores the idea of regeneration on an industrial area of Auckland built on land reclaimed from the Waitemata Harbour.
From 17th – 27th April visitors to Silo 6 were invited to create, make and contribute to a growing artwork. This was part of the Growing the Future art exhibition: paintings of community gardens by Jean Stewart, an urban garden installation by Emily Harris and Unitec design students and an information platform for community gardeners.
The making of this art installation was divided into two parts. The first being workshops run in schools and community facilities before the opening night on the 16th April. The work generated by these workshops provided the starting point for the installation. Laingholm School and Ponsonby Primary were the two schools who contributed to the work. The second being the artworks produced during the exhibition and made in the Silo art space.
Several community groups took part, Mt Albert YMCA holiday programme, Morningside Playcentre, Blockhouse Bay Girl Guides and children and adults who visited the site. If your organisation would like to undertake a collaborative art project Contact Sue
