Bay of Plenty Garden and Art Festival

Bloom in the Bay

Make Art Not Waste

Envirohub’s annual Sustainable Art Challenge with Wearable Arts and 48-hour second-hand fashion categories joins the Garden & Art Festival this year. 

“Our challenge offers participants a chance to not only compete for great prizes but help us to spread the message that whilst we all need clothes, we need to make wiser choices. With participants from under 16 and over 16 age groups, we reach out to the next generation of fashion designers to inspire others.” 

Special thanks to Creative Communities NZ Tauranga City Council and Creative Communities NZ Western BOP.
