The cottage built in 1882 in Gothic style was originally for Albert Park’s first keeper, this unique venue will provide an opportunity for artists of Māori heritage to present work in Tāmakai Makaurau. The name of the exhibition links to an ancient spring that flows from this whenua tuku iho/ historical area. This Puna was seen as a key water source over 100's of years and is located 500 meters from the cottage. Both the Cottage and the Puna could be seen as historical monuments that link to pre-colonial settlement and post-colonial settlement. 

Following concepts of mātaurange and tikanga Māori, collaborations between established artists and students working on-site and interacting with visitors to the cottage will be encouraged, with works on display available for purchase.

Artists will be on-site during the course of the exhibition, presenting workshops and talks.
