Ka Awatea signifies daybreak, the awakening of creativity and the emergence of new voices. Creativity as a life-force is particularly resonant in a global pandemic which disrupted normal life and forced us to recalibrate. Creativity both sustained us and allowed new ways of seeing. The pandemic also revealed new understanding of living in isolation, something that is all too familiar for some people who experience mental distress.
Ōtautahi Creative Spaces is a specialist creative wellbeing initiative in Christchurch supporting people with experience of mental distress. We do this through studio groups, artist mentoring, collaborative projects and exhibitions.
