Late Night Events:
Artist Workshop

Can you listen, and be heard at the same time? Join artist Olivia Webb for an hour-long singing workshop that gives an opportunity to participate in a live recreation of her artwork Scale. Webb will lead the group through the different musical traditions that exist within the work. No prior singing or music skills required.

Webb is an artist and trained classical singer with experience in both performing and choral conducting. Her work Scale, currently exhibited at Te Tuhi, uses singing to explore cultural diversity within the New Zealand Catholic Church.
