The Awards will be shown alongside the Perch Project, an education initiative from the Wallace Arts Trust: Art History Students from participating Secondary Schools joined in a special series of tours at the Pah Homestead and Rannoch earlier this year. Using the artworks they saw as inspiration, students selected works from the Wallace Arts Trust Collection and conceived curatorial concepts to devise an exhibition for the Pah Homestead. This year the Wallace Arts Trust selected the exhibition called “T as in Tea” by a young curator Georgia Eilering from Whangarei Girls High School.
