Celebrated was the launch of Empower Aotearoa, a new enterprise dedicated to exploring the therapeutic qualities of art within the community. The event featured free creative well-being workshops, encompassing activities like painting, collage, dance, sensory exercises, wearable creations, and more. "Art on the Street" provided daily diverse creative activities outside the workshops throughout the day, inviting participants to experience a broad range of artistic expressions.
