Support Artists for Water and Peace: SCANZ 2015

SCANZ2015:water*peace brings together tangata whenua, artists, scientists, and technologists with the local communities of Parihaka and Nga Motu New Plymouth, for a two week three weekend residency. It includes short term exhibition of works along the Huatoki Stream walkway, public activity day, night time video projections and a walking symposium.

The project begins on the 18th and 19th of January at Parihaka, days when the inspirational prophets of peace, Te Whiti and Tohu are celebrated.

The SCANZ 2015 crowdfunding campaign on Boosted has started. Please consider waltzing over and making a pledge. If we don’t make it to $3000, you don’t have to hand over the money. Every bit helps.

My first experience of SCANZ was in 2013 and I can honestly say it is the best residency program I have ever participated in: my eyes and heart were opened wide to possibility. I found it was also a call to action to not only consider environmental issues and connections across humanity, but to work towards creating awareness and positive change. Since then I have continued my connection with Intercreate.org (the organisation who put this event together) and feel very privileged to be a part of this community.

It is a very worthwhile project and every donation is greatly appreciated!
