About the event

This weekend an eclectic group of creative minds are arriving in our region to lend their expertise and passion to local climate resilience projects, with the aim of elevating extreme weather preparedness discussions and supporting local groups that are actively engaged in sustainable land use and adaptation planning. The initiative is in partnership with Toi Aria, the centre for social impact design at Massey University and will look like a fusion of art, design, music, and storytelling. 

The visiting creatives include design researcher, educator, and founder of Toi Āria, Professor Anna Brown, cartoonist and social commentator Toby Morris, jazz singer and graphic designer Wallace Gollan, journalist Michelle Duff, writer Ingrid Horrocks, designer and illustrator Hanna Breurkes, visual communication designer Kirsten Browne, digital producer Emma Bossley, designer and illustrator Jean Donaldson, writer and art collaborator Tim Corballis, photographers Johanna Mechen and David Cook, and photographic artist Jonathan Kay. 

They will be grouped with local artists and community initiatives, Slash For Cash, Radice Soil Solutions, Ngahere Network, Exchange Cafe, Tāiki E! Next Gen Escapes, East Coast Exchange, Te Kautuku, Circular Economy Mission, Tairāwhiti Bioeconomy Project, Tōtaranui Nama Ono Trust and a wāhine water focussed collaboration out of Uawa.  Visiting and local creatives will work with their respective community groups over the course of the weekend, workshopping ideas and creating works, culminating in an exhibition and performance event at 6pm, Sunday 11 February at Midway Community Hub.  

Public are invited to attend this free event. Find more information here. The end time is approximate.
