Flag It! In Rawene
November 22, 2014 @ 2:30 pm - December 14, 2014 @ 5:00 pm
Flag It! – an exhibition of designs for Aotearoa/New Zealand’s next national flag including artists and designers Maureen Lander, Dawn Harris, Dick Frizzell, Otis Frizzell, Michael Smythe and more is travelling to Rawene!
The first of a two-part ‘New Zealand Flag Referendum’ was held as part of the 2014 national elections. The people of Aotearoa, New Zealand were asked to vote on whether or not their country will fly a new flag. In the case of an affirmative referendum it will be ensured that the public can contribute design ideas.
Depot Artspace prepared for this process by initiating Flag It! – an exhibition opportunity for people to have their say and represent their country, identity and tūrangawaewae/sense of place by creating their own flag design and participating in panel discussions. The exhibition will be held at No1 Parnell Street, Rawene. There will be a workshop where you can contribute your own designs as well!
