Donna Denize, the Schools Coordinator at te tuhi - the mark, is currently undertaking a Postgraduate Diploma in Museum Studies. One of the requirements of her course is to organise an exhibition. This has provided her with the opportunity to challenge the different ways people learn from artworks.
The theme of this exhibition is centered around a maro created by Wiremu Wilson Diamond. The word maro is used to describe a warrior’s garment. However, by the time of Captain Cook’s arrival in New Zealand the name has been transferred to a small apron worn by women.
Pathways to Learning relates to the idea that people learn through different experiences and methods. This particular pathway will be able to be traveled in any direction, and will include supporting information and objects that will relate back to the maro. This provides the opportunity to see and read information about the different materials used in the construction of the contemporary maro.
