A Creative Life - The Toi Ako Mentoring Project

Flirting with Form: Works by Toi Ako Artists

A touring exhibition of works created by kaumātua artists and their artist mentors during the TOI AKO Mentoring Project, Auckland 2019.

The Connect the Dots programmes show how the energy of creativity through art helps expand engagement with life for kamātua. "Creativity provides both an opportunity for improved wellbeing, both on an individual and community level, but also gives makers a voice and presence," says Connect the Dots Charitable Trust Director, Andrea Gaskin. The Toi Ako touring exhibition speaks strongly to the goals of the Trust - to enable participants the opportunity to find freedom, their voice, new relationships and creative understandings. The Chartwell Trust is a proud supporter of this vision.
