Through Our Lens
Nāku te rourou nāu te rourou, ka ora ai te iwi.
With food in your basket and food in my basket the people will thrive.
This Whakataukī speaks of community and collaboration, and the richness gained from working together. In early 2021 a group formed of people from different cultures, gender, ages, and backgrounds at the Youth Centre. They met weekly to explore the world around them through photography.
This exhibition is a selection of their images that convey a feeling of belonging, inclusion and celebration. It has been funded by the Creative Communities Scheme and supported by local photographers.
Through Our Lens is on in our Community Gallery from 24 April until 30 May 2021.
