Seaweek

Seaweek is a national celebration, held from 2 – 10 March, that focuses on inspiring kiwis to renew their connections with the sea. To celebrate, we are hosting a Seaweek exhibition and activity space from our ‘Education Station’ at downtown Auckland’s new Silo Park. Free educational presentations, workshops and activities will be available for schools, businesses and community groups from 10am to 8pm each day from Monday 4 to Thursday 7 March.

Outside of these times all are welcome to explore our exhibition space and browse our photos, videos, display and educational materials, as well as contribute to a collaborative artwork made from beach clean-up rubbish.
