Best Project Twin Streams Art Work Vote

Media Release

2nd October 2008

For immediate release


Community encouraged to vote for best Project Twin Streams Art Work

Over 40 pieces of original art work inspired by the themes and ideals of Project Twin Streams are being exhibited at the Unitec Waitakere Campus, on Ratanui St, Henderson from the 2nd to the 10th of October as part of the Waitakere Trust Art Awards.

This is the first year Project Twin Streams has sponsored a section of the established Waitakere Trust Art Awards and the response to the category has been fantastic.

The 40 works, which span a wide range of mediums and messages, show the many different sides of Project Twin Streams and the important issues the project is working around.  

The public are able to have their say in which work best represents Project Twin Streams by voting in the People Choice Awards at the exhibition.

Mandy Patmore, Project Twin Stream Arts Coordinator has been working closely with the Waitakere Central Arts Council to put on the awards, “It is fantastic to see so many awesome works here – people have really researched the Project’s aims and ideas and the artists have really thought about their subject matter”.

Artists were asked to use the questions; What have we done? What are we doing? Whose streams are these? as the starting point for their research and works.

The Project Twin Stream awards are part of the annual Waitakere Trust Art Awards 2008 held in West Auckland. The awards are coordinated by Waitakere Central Community Arts Council, with funding from Waitakere Trust and are currently in their 22nd year.

Project Twin Streams is an award-winning, stream bank restoration project based in Waitakere City, Auckland. The nine year project aims to restore and replant 56kms of Waitakere stream banks using a sustainable development approach. The project is delivered under a unique council/community partnership approach where local residents and groups, work with the local co-coordinators to get residents involved in restoring their local stream.

 Waitakere City Council receives funding from the Auckland Regional Council to undertake Project Twin Streams.
