Event description

Description

Knox Church Dunedin is hosting a city-wide ART COMPETITION this October. Its aim is to highlight the climate change emergency, kaitiakitanga and our need to protect it.

Our opening will be open to all people including artists, art-lovers, families, and friends of our wider Dunedin Community. Before the viewing of the Art, we have two keynote speakers and the prize-giving for the 1rst, 2nd and 3rd winners of our children and youth categories.
Guest speakers include Marie Laufiso (Dunedin City Councillor) and Bridie Lonie (Head of the Dunedin School of Art, Design, and Architecture).

Everybody is invited to coffee, tea, and baking after the formal event part to socialize and connect.


There is a rising tide of concern about global warming, but much of it appeals to panic and alarm. This is entirely understandable, especially for young people facing an uncertain future. But we at Knox also believe this needs to be complemented by a positive vision for the future. Art can help to nurture this vision.
