SCANZ2015:water*peace brings together tangata
whenua, artists, scientists, and technologists with the local
communities of Parihaka and Nga Motu New Plymouth, for a two week
three weekend residency. It includes short term exhibition of works
along the Huatoki Stream walkway, public activity day, night time
video projections and a walking symposium.
The project begins on the 18th and 19th of January at Parihaka,
days when the inspirational prophets of peace, Te
Whiti and Tohu are celebrated.
In the weeks that follow the participants will engage with a
range of local groups and people to create projects to be exhibited
and presented during a public activity day, and temporarily along
the banks of the Huatoki stream walkway.
There are plans for workshops with the children of Parihaka and
with local New Plymouth kids as part of their holiday programmes.
We will be testing water, looking at water from scientifc and
creative apsects, presenting spontaneously collaborative works, and
night time projections on buildings.
We do not pay the artists a fee but instead try to cover their
costs. The participants, like many people, are conceerned about the
environment and the human relationship to it.
So they are happy to fundraise to attend SCANZ, and we at
Intercreate believe it is important to connect communities in
regard to turning the human relationship to the environment
