Estuary Arts World War 1 Commemorative Programme

Posted on March 21st, 2014


Some of the highlights of the event at the Estuary Arts Centre in Orewa include:

  •  A rare collection of original military artworks from War time artists such as Frank Crozier (on loan from the Auckland War memorial Museum)
  •  1800 ceramic poppies made by over 1200 young people in our community. Our aim was to make approximately 10 % of the more than 18,000 New Zealanders who lost their lives. This tribute to these men will be displayed in a huge wall installation in the gallery.
  •  A disability stitch project – adults who live with multiple disabilities have been involved in this creative programme for more than 6 months, to stitch examples of World War posters, letters and postcards as well as the famous poem “In Flanders Fields”.
  •  A local writer Lyn Dawson will be holding a series of writers workshops, “Lest We Forget” .
