We are very fortunate at the EcoCentre to have artistic contributions from a very well known local artist; Theresa Reihana.

The murals were originally designed for the previous location of the EcoCentre but have found a new home on the walls of our new spot on Bank Street.

The artwork was created by Theresa, along with students from Te Kura Kaupapa Māori o Pukemiro, Taipa Area School and Te Rangi Aniwaniwa. Using the theme of the Māori creation legend of Ranginui and Papatuanuku as well as imagery from both land and sea. Funded by the Creative Communities Scheme the murals were part of a competition open to all secondary schools in the area.
