Event Details

The 1000 Paper Cranes Challenge will be taking over the Auckland Art Gallery’s North Atrium for a whole weekend of creative art-making. This is a drop-in event inspired by themes from our current exhibition Enchanted Worlds: Hokusai, Hiroshige and the Art of Edo Japan.

In Japanese tradition, a Senbazuru is usually gifted to family or friends who may be ill as a symbol of hope and longevity. It has the meaning of healing and is often related to stories where great disasters have happened. We have all been affected by COVID-19, so let’s come together to create, connect, reflect and be present as we create the 1000 Paper Cranes installation — a symbol of healing.

Please note: There will be limited seats, so there may be a waiting time.


FREE entry.
