Fashion designer and environmental artist Miranda Brown is launching an interactive public art project at the ArtWest Exhibition 2016. As part of a series of flag workshops, The Kelston Flag Project will engage local audiences to create their own artwork reflecting and celebrating Kelston’s identity. As a community project, members of the public will create an individual artwork. The artwork will then become part of a master artwork that will be printed onto a cluster of beautiful flags. The flags will be used throughout the Kelston and the Whau area for community festivals, events and celebrations.

Sunday 16th October:

The SaVAge K’lub features a variety of artful and literary entertainments. Exotic tea will be brewed, sumptuous treats will be available for your consumption, and audiences are invited to bring their own regalia.

3pm The Whau Arts Meet up:
We all do amazing work in our local neighbourhoods and want to grow and support each other. To help us do that (and get to know you all better) Art West and the Whau Community Arts Broker are hosting a meet-up for people working in the arts in the Whau. There will be refreshments and the opportunity to catch up with each other and make new connections.

The Whau Arts Meetup is a semi-regular social event hosted by different local arts organisations which create opportunities for people to meet and build networks.

Join us at ArtWest to celebrate arts out West.
