headland Sculpture on the Gulf’s purpose is to make a unique contribution to the cultural life of Aotearoa by creating opportunities for people to experience the power and beauty of contemporary sculpture in the landscape.
With a focus on Waiheke and Auckland based students at intermediate and high school levels, the Education Programme will engage young people in participatory conversations about the artists and art works, the idea of public art in the landscape, and critical thinking skills.
In 2017 we are offering a tailored education programme for schools that book a visit with the Education Coordinator.
Materials available below for free download include worksheets that offer ideas, talking points, and activities for teachers and families, allowing them to shape an independent visit to the exhibition. The education materials include a pre-visit pack, Sculpture Trail worksheets, and post visit activities.
headland Sculpture on Gulf has support for student group travel from South Auckland to Waiheke. This includes return bus and ferry travel.
To book a visit for your school or make an enquiry please email Charlotte Maguire, Education Coordinator with details of your group, group size and preferred date(s) and time(s) of visit.
The 2017 headland Sculpture on Gulf Education Programme is made possible by grants from:
John and Jo Gow, 2016 Arts Foundation of New Zealand Award for Patronage Recipients
