For information on the Auckland event below

Tūmanako Auckland 2018

Tumanako is a festival of art for the youth and by the youth, in commemoration of the 73rd anniversary of Hiroshima and Nagasaki nuclear attack. At the same time, we also celebrate the 31st anniversary of Aotearoa New Zealand as a nuclear free country, and the 1st anniversary of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.

Students from Albany Senior High School in association with Soka Gakkai International (SGINZ), are organising an Auckland wide event commemorating Hiroshima Day called ‘Tumanako! – Children’s Art Works for a Peaceful World’ – a youth art exhibition for hope and peace. We would like to invite students, aged 8 to 18 years-old, to participate in this wonderful event for peace by creating a work of art, including but not limited to: painting, sculpture, drawing, musical piece, and dance. All artworks must reflect the theme ‘hope for a peaceful world’. We encourage students to work collaboratively to create these pieces.
