2020 - Porowhita Tonu features some of the Bay of Plenty’s most exciting up and coming artists, and creatives from Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology Creative Industries degree programme.

We’re proud to host two window displays with just a sample of their creativity and passion for being sustainable and starting conversations about topical issues and ideas. We have 5 students exhibiting works across the two locations.

These students are in their final year of study from Fashion to Graphic Design and Visual Art, there is a wide range of ideas and values expressed through a variety of materials, mediums and technologies. Jayden Kennedy and Amaria Kee-Huaki are visual arts majors, Renee Henry is a graphic design major, and Liam Banbury and Jera Stanley are fashion majors. The works being shown are part of a previous body of work that each artist/designer submitted last semester as part of their degree.​

See these displays of some of our region’s most exciting emerging creatives at 28 Devonport Road and in the former Style X Lab store window in Red Square.​

The purpose of this mini exhibition is to promote their graduate exhibition, to be held at Toi Ohomai’s Windermere campus on Friday, November 20th.
