TŌNUI Collab has partnered with Te Tairawhiti  Arts Festival to bring Tairawhiti's tile wall portrait concept into the digital realm. Tamariki are invited to take part in one of a series of workshops at TŌNUI Collab where they, like the generation before them, will create a self-portrait but this time in the digital space and enhanced with a creative video sharing their hopes for the future of Tairawhiti.

These workshops will run every day of the school holidays and will culminate with an exhibition of the self-portraits. 

Thanks to partnership support are only $5. 

[NOTE - Due to the unique focus of these workshops, tamariki can only attend Tairawhiti Arts Festival workshops once.]

Every school holidays we invite 7+ year olds into the lab to create, construct, test and prototype. Our workshops encourage children to get excited by technology - we introduce children to animation, engineering, robotics, coding, augmented reality and more! 


Our mission is to build confidence through inquiry, investigation and experimentation through hands-on creative teaching methods. We help children learn how to take advantage of the capabilities of technology, becoming creators– not just consumers.  

School holiday workshops run from 9am - 12noon, Monday - Friday, Cost: $35 per child per workshop.
