TŪmanako! - Children's Art.

Works for Peace.

TŪMANAKO!

Tūmanako! (meaning Hope!) is an annual children’s exhibition which was originally launched in Wellington to commemorate Hiroshima Day. It has since grown to focus more broadly on peace and inclusivity. The exhibition aims to provide a space where children can voice their own aspirations for peace. At a time of unrest and divisiveness, Tumanako! enables school children and young people to learn about the root causes of violence and promote peace.

This event is now in its 6th year and is growing across Aotearoa.

We can't wait to see all the children's creativity and engagement in the coming year's events.

Please stay tuned as we update details of participating cities.

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

Tūmanako!
