Join us at the Gus Fisher Gallery for a fun and visually immersive experience of artworks that take us above and beneath the ocean! Through mesmerising film and light installations, learn about the value that Moana brings to our lives and join us in our fight to go plastic free to help protect our oceans.
 
What we can offer:

A bespoke education experience for your class, hosted by our public programmes and engagement officer, Julia Craig, which could include: 

  • A complimentary guided tour of the exhibition
  • A tailored educational activity about plastic pollution (devised in advance to complement curriculum requirements, cost to be considered)
  • A hands on workshop ($2 per head koha)
  • Storytime in the gallery’s Kete Aronui space 
  • A dedicated space for lunch and hosting.

All groups will need to be accompanied by a teacher and guardians at all times. Students must be briefed on entry to the gallery and be mindful of how to act around breakable exhibits.
