That’s Artstanding

‘That’s Artstanding!’ , our wearable arts and performing arts showcase was a sell out show once again.  Attended by an audience of 270, the show was a great success, and could not have been achieved without the support of our sponsors and the community.
The wearable arts sections were interspersed with performing arts pieces by the college kapa haka, jazz band, rock band, hip hop crew, poly club, girls’ barbershop, and stage art performances, as well as two scholarship textiles presentations.
Several of the wearable arts pieces will be exhibited in Tutere Gallery and creative space, Waikanae, until the 2nd of December.
