Community Art, Thames

Unearth the Past community project for the Steampunk Parade, funded by Creative Communities. I worked with students from Thames South School and Puriri Primary.

The Clay Peace Project was a response to the events in Christchurch on 15th March 2019.
 In the days following, at the Thames Saturday Market and the Sunday Council vigil, the local community were invited to make a clay heart for a collaborative artwork that encourages harmony and inclusiveness. It allowed participants to reflect on their own community and make a small creative contribution as a sign of support and respect for the Christchurch Muslim families. This mural is installed at Lotus Realm in Thames with a sister mural installed at the local library in Thames .
