What is aroha? What does it look like? How does it feel? Who and what do you and your communities care about?

Weaving together contributions from schools, kura, aged-care facilities, community and cultural organisations around the city, this large-scale collaborative art project asks the people of Auckland to reflect on what aroha means to them.

Inspired by weaving practices and using only found materials, Aroha Art Project will bind your individual and collective expressions into an expanding, collaborative work of art to be displayed in the heart of the Festival at Aotea Square.

In a time of challenges, creative collaboration can calm, heal and connect, providing new opportunities for reflection and thought. 

Bring your creative flair, join the Aroha Art Project and delve into our collective consciousness of aroha: 

Aroha ki ngā kōrero / respect for our stories
Aroha ki te tangata / show kindness, compassion, goodwill towards people
Aroha ki te taiao / caring for our natural environment – air, land, water
