Experience the joy of creativity and art making in Te Aka Matua | The Creative Learning Centre . A family-friendly space with fun, hands-on activities, Te Aka Matua | The Creative Learning Centre encourages tamariki (children) and whānau (family) to engage with art and develop their own creative voice. Located on the mezzanine level, the space is open daily 10am–5pm and is free to visit. 

Te Aka Matua | The Creative Learning Centre has been home to many different interactive projects. The current project is Ngā Pakiaka: Like the Roots of a Tree. Explore your connection to the taiao (natural environment) through art making in Ngā Pakiaka. Be inspired by the whenua (land) and all its living creatures in fun, family-friendly activities that encourage you to feel with your fingers, play with your imagination, connect with each other and be a proud, creative kaitiaki (guardian) of our planet.

Please note, Te Aka Matua | The Creative Learning Centre will be closed from Monday 11 to Thursday 14 March. We will reopen on Friday 15 March.
