Creative Kids Wearable Arts Show

Inspiring Our Children Of the Future


We put on a community event which included two of our local schools and also our local elderly club who performed thier wearable hats they made during our workshop with the 'Popping in Club"

We had four neutral judges, those of who provide our community arts and culture!


We had amazing prizes up for grabs and also had the privilage to be sponsored by Honda Hamilton with some awesome prizes.


The event was funded by Creative Communities Fund Otorohanga District Council


Our event was also featured in the local newspaper!


It was awesome to have our families in the community coming together and supporting local arts and our young and elder community members.
