The international event Slow Art Day was created to encourage us all to look at art for a little longer, in the hope that we not only see more, but also get to know the works in greater detail. At the same time, slowing down, and being present, is one of those things that are somehow so hard to do in our busy lives, and yet, so important for our wellbeing.
So, amidst the excitement and whirlwind that is the Arts Festival, we invite you to take things slowly today. We have prepared a few events to guide you through the day, but really: take your time, explore at your own pace and enjoy the rich arts scene of Whakatū.
Watch this space for the Slow Art Day schedule.
