Carlton School Whanganui

Region: Taranaki/Whanganui/Manawatu

Art form: Multi-Disciplinary

Project name: Te Whai Urungi/ Wayfinding

Creative name:

Project Information:
The creative aim of this project is to support the greater appreciation, integration and value of the Pacific cultures within our school through its visual presence. Te Whai Urungi or Wayfinding is how people find their way around an environment. In a traditional cultural sense, it is the story of how our tīpuna (ancestors) traversed and navigated Te Moananui a Kiwa utilising the environment, tohu (signs) and natural phenomenon to find their way across the vastness of the Moana. We would use symbols to guide and direct people within our school. We will use the wayfinding concept to further demonstrate our community values of; Te Pono (honesty), Kotahitanga (community), Te Matatika (integrity), Tū te mana tū te mauri (belonging) and Te Whakaute (respect) and enhance our implementation of manaakitanga across the School when welcoming new whānau, new students and also visitors to our School. These stories would form the “narratives'' for the production of visual artworks to be displayed within and around the School.

The creative outcome will be visual symbols created by the children through and with the guidance of our creatives and the project lead. These visual symbols will be located around the School to guide people and will effectively form a “map” to help others navigate their way through our School.

Project starting: March 2023
