A monthly meet-up for East Auckland creatives and those interested in creative things.

Join us for a free morning burst of inspiration. Two speakers from different creative backgrounds will share projects, ideas, and artistic wisdom. Grab a coffee from our cafe following the presentations and continue the conversation!

This month we have Alvin Xiong and Maha Te Hape Tomo.

Maha has been carving bone and pounamu for over 10 years and has found that his art has opened doors to new places and new people, while at the same time connecting him back to old places, and to his old people. Maha is of Waikato Tainui, Rangitane, Ngati Kauwhata and Ngai Tahu descent and his hapu in Te Wai Pounamu is Ngati Huirapa of Arowhenua in Temuka.

Alvin Xiong is an accomplished painter, photographer, sculptor and teacher. He is a tutor at UXBRIDGE and has exhibited at the Centre numerous times. We are pleased to have works by Xiong installed to complement this year’s Estuary Art and Ecology Prize.

Free to attend, all welcome.
