Project Paint the Pacific
'Project Paint the Pacific' was created after attending the Festival of Pacific Arts 2016 as members of the Aotearoa delegation. This was our conscious effort to use the arts as a communication tool to bring awareness to native/endemic birdlife while partnering with local indigenous communities & wildlife organisations throughout the Pacific to do so.
Telling the stories of the land with the support & blessing of those who belong to it, the opportunities have come through relationship building & philanthropic venture. Each island has revealed its beauty through the people we have met, the birdlife we have painted & the local communities, governments & businesses that we have partnered with to date. Thank you to the nations & islands of Samoa, Tonga , Rarotonga, Tahiti, Moorea, Bora Bora, Ra'iātea & Guam for your hospitality and love towards what we do & for opening your arms & hearts to us. With Covid-19 a present reality this project is on hold but we look forward to the many more adventures to be had when the borders open up again.
