Tena koutou katoa,
Te Hononga o nga whakaaro, hei tuapapa mo te mahi tahi, tutuki noa to tatou kaupapa. A melding of ideas as a firm foundation for combined effort and realisation of our collective vision.
Inspired by our friendship with Friedensreich Hundertwasser, Te Hononga is a community-led project and will fuse environmental build and design with natural materials, Toi Māori art, culture and shared community spaces.
Located in Kawakawa, behind the world-famous Hundertwasser Toilets (opened in 1999), Te Hononga will be a centre for our local community and manuhiri (visitors) alike. A place to celebrate arts, culture and a connection to each other and our environment.
Construction will start September 2018 with an aim to open December 2019, 20 years after the opening of the original Hundertwasser toilets.
WE HOPE THAT YOU CAN JOIN US, PLEASE GIVE GENEROUSLY AND HELP OUR COMMUNITY VISION COME TO LIFE.
STAGE 1 – CONSTRUCTION
Over $4 million for the construction and key infrastructure for Te Hononga, Kawakawa Hundertwasser Park has already been raised with the support of our project partners and the Government’s Provincial Growth Fund.
STAGE 2 – FIT OUT, LANDSCAPING & ART WORKS
We now need your help to raise funds for the fit-out, landscaping and creative-cultural elements of the Centre, working towards our target opening of December 2019.
