“These Year 10 Visual Art students from Sacred Heart College in Napier have produced artworks that explore the concept of “Culture”. We looked at a range of ways of making at through design, photography, and sculpture/assemblage. They were asked to generate, develop, and refine ideas, to portray an interpretation of what culture means to them. As well as Investigating and considering the relationship of their life and traditions from their culture and identify the context they are making, viewing, and valuing the artwork.
In addition, the Catholic social teaching principle of Solidarity is about recognising others as our brothers and sisters and actively working for their good. In our connected humanity, we are invited to build relationships – whakawhanaungatanga – to understand what life is like for others who are different from us. By sharing our interpretation of our own identity and culture, we are opening up avenues of sharing and understanding differences.”
