Furnware Ambassador Programme - Tūrangawaewae
[Due to Covid 19 level restrictions registrations are now required through hbaf.co.nz. To manage audience numbers, we have added an additional 3pm performance on Sunday October 24th 2022.]
The Festival is proud to celebrate the 6th year of the Furnware Ambassador Programme. Furnware’s support helps nurture Hawke’s Bay’s next generation of creatives, providing a group of secondary students with a unique opportunity to engage with the Festival each year, both on and off-stage.
We again work in partnership with the Toitoi Creative Leaders Programme, an initiative designed to build relationships throughout the region and provide opportunities for youth to gain a deeper understanding of the Arts Industry.
Tūrangawaewae - a place to stand
Friends, whānau and the general public are warmly invited to join the Furnware Ambassadors in a sharing of their stories, ideas and discoveries - a culmination of their learning over the 10 weeks leading up to the Festival. Tūrangawaewae – a place to stand follows on from last year’s theme – Threads of Touch. The performance will be a bold, spontaneous gathering of learning and personal stories across many performance disciplines, woven together in an ensemble piece guided by Director Lisa-Jane Easter.
