Visit the Gallery’s website and take your class on a virtual tour of the monumental exhibition Tai Moana Tai Tangata by Brett Graham (Ngāti Koroki Kahukura, Tainui).

This exhibition is a very rich resource for classes exploring local history and uses a contemporary Māori arts lens. The virtual tour was developed specifically for schools and includes extra historical information and discussion questions for groups.

Explore this resource independently or invite a Gallery educator to your school to lead a lesson using both the virtual tour and follow up practical artmaking activities designed to connect with the history of your own local area.
