Tūmanako (Hope) - Lower Hutt City

A partner project with The Dowse Art Museum - 'Tūmanako' (Hope) is a visual statement sending hope to a city that is in early stages of redeveloping its unique identity. Funded by the Lower Hutt City Council Riverlink Project, it speaks of the return of Kereru once known to flock in huge numbers around the local area. A sign of hope, of restoration & return - thank you to everyone who helped to make this project happen.

Our art collective TMD Crew will be exhibiting at The Dowse in April 2021. Establishing local connections & networks is an important aspect of the wider scope of the event, the murals & workshops that have been designed all aim to strengthen those ties with local residents, Iwi and the artists involved & are stage 1.

Thank you to everyone who helped to bring this to life - Pippa Anderson, Paki Maaka (Hutt City Council), local kaumatua Kura Moeahu & Karl Citham (Director The Dowse). Images by Mirella Moschella.
