TŪmanako! - Children's Art

Works for Peace

Tūmanako! is an exhibition commemorating the Hiroshima and Nagasaki nuclear attack in 1945 and supporting an inclusive Aotearoa New Zealand where all lives are treasured.

Marking this year's 74th anniversary, local children will express in art their hopes and dreams for a peaceful world to thrive in. The resulting exhibition will display artworks of children aged 18 years old and under from all over New Zealand.

TŪMANAKO 2019!

This year's TŪMANAKO! exhibitions and opening events are already confirmed for Auckland, Hutt City, Wellington and for the first time Christchurch, Dunedin and the Wairarapa! The openings will generally be held in August. We can't wait to see all the children's creativity and engagement in this year's events.

Come and celebrate the young artists' success. All welcome.
