NZ MURAL & ART FESTIVAL
[POSTPONED TO APRIL 2022]
The theme of our next Festival to be held in 2022 is:
“UNSUNG HEROES IN 2020”
He aha te mea nui o te ao. He tangata, he tangata, he tangata.
“What is the most important thing in the world? It is people, it is people, it is people.”
2020 was an ‘unprecedented times’ for our country and globally. Lockdowns; face masks; changes to employment, have affected us all and has brought out the best in many of us from kindness to networking within our community.
Katikati Open Air Art would like to celebrate and acknowledge the individuals in our community who gave outstanding service to those isolated and in need. Someone who has done great deeds but received little or no recognition for them.
In a move from our normal mural contest each artist will receive a photo of one of our chosen unsung heroes to paint.
All the portraits will then be placed together to form one large mural to be installed in our town as a reminder of this challenging time in modern history.
