Eye on Nature Wearable Arts
June 2022 | Vodafone Events Centre, Manukau
The search is on for Auckland’s most promising, environmentally-conscious young artists and designers!
Eye on Nature Wearable Arts is an annual competition for Auckland primary and secondary school students, run by the Beautification Trust. Students are challenged to create eco-friendly wearable art around the Eye on Nature theme, Incredible Kai, with $3,500 in cash awarded to the winning schools.
The garments are judged at the Eye on Nature Wearable Arts Fashion Show, held at the Vodafone Events Centre in June. The showcase gives tamariki and rangatahi the exciting experience of modelling their eco-friendly creations on a fashion runway in front of a live audience!

We are offering free Zoom workshops for teachers who want to learn more about taking part in Wearable Arts. Both workshops are the same, so you can choose the time that suits you best.
Every year we have a different theme. Our Eye on Nature theme for 2022 is Incredible Kai.
Not only does kai (food) nourish us and keep our bodies healthy, but our relationship with kai also affects the health of the planet. Food security and sustainability are becoming increasingly important on our collective journey to a greener future.
Understanding where kai comes from, how it gets to the table and what happens with food scraps helps us deepen our personal relationship with nature. Kai is also an amazing social connector which brings communities and whānau together.
Throughout Eye on Nature 2022, tamariki and whānau will learn more about...
How food is made, from growing to gathering
How we prepare and eat food, and how food nourishes us
How food gets to

What we do with packaging and food scraps
