the hokianga community drawing project

The process of looking, seeing and viewing enables us to interpret experiences visually, emotionally and aesthetically. The Hokianga Community Drawing Project invited the communities of north and south Hokianga to make their mark on a large canvas (7.5x1.6m) with mānawa (mangrove) charcoal. From Opononi and Rawene to Kohukohu, Mitimiti and Mangamuka, this project sought to connect with communities north and south of the Hokianga ferry link using a novel, collaborative drawing approach to talk about and express the experiences of living in the Hokianga at a time of climate change.
