How do artworks tell stories? How do artists tell stories? How do galleries tell stories? And why?

Through play-based activities and building on prior knowledge, ākonga will creatively and critically make meanings of, and respond to, artworks.

In the exhibition spaces, educators will facilitate kōrero and activities to help ākonga unpack, interpret and engage with the stories told through artworks and curation.

In the Taupuni Mahi Studio, ākonga will experiment with materials, techniques and ideas to tell their own stories through creating artworks.
