Te Hā Art Award and Exhibition 2017

'The impact of settlement upon the native flora and fauna of Te Tairāwhiti’

Opening 5:30pm 6 October 2017.

In October 2019 our region and nation will commemorate the 250th anniversary of the first meetings of tangata whenua and those on the Endeavour, which took place here in Te Tairāwhiti. This significant event encourages us to consider our region’s unique and fascinating heritage.

2017 is the second year of Te Hā Art Award and Exhibition. Entry is free and this year’s theme questions what effects Māori and European settlement have had on Aotearoa’s distinctive flora and fauna.

Artists are encouraged to explore any avenue of thought which incorporates this ‘seasons’ topic. From the ongoing benefits of preservation and conservation, to the extreme past and present predatory activities which have decimated so many species.

Sponsors Pultron Composites, offers prizes for the open $3000 and youth $500 sections and this year Dr Jack C Richards presents a further two awards for Highly Commended $1500 and People’s Choice $1000.

Presented by: Tairāwhiti Museum and Te Hā1769 Sestercentennial Trust
