A slightly smaller scale version of the Kermadec exhibition has opened at the New Zealand High Commission in Nuku’alofa, Tonga this week.
Happy to report that the exhibition, the opening (attended by HRH Princess Latufuipeka Halaevalu Mata’aho Tuku’aho, the workshops, the school visits, and artist talks are all a huge hit – with fantastic attendance, feedback and coverage. And the exhibition looks fantastic too!
By the end of next week over 1,700 primary school children will have visited the exhibition. In addition some of the artists (Robin White, Gregory O’Brien, John Pule and Elizabeth Thomson and Bronwyn Golder will have visited more than a dozen schools – will send some pics of those visits shortly.
The Princess (daughter of the King), Australian High Commissioner, NZ High Commissioner, Japanese Ambassador, Minister of Tourism, the High Court Judge (a Kiwi in Tonga), school teachers, church leaders, and cultural leaders attended the Exhibition opening.

The exhibition will run from 22 May to 1 June 2012
