2022 Tūmanako

The Tūmanako project is a commemorating the 77th anniversary of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Tūmanako! (meaning Hope!) is an annual art exhibition for tamariki/children and taiohi/young people to create works of art to share their aspirations for a peaceful, inclusive and nuclear free world in remembrance of Hiroshima Day. At a time of unrest and divisiveness, Tumanako! enables tamariki and taiohi to learn about the root causes of violence and promote peace.

Opening ceremony:

Saturday 6 August 2022; 1:30pm-3:30pm

AUT Sir Paul Reeves building (WG building)



Children 8 to 18 years old are invited to create a work of art for a peaceful world.


It would be really appreciated if you can register your interest (or your class’ interest) in participating as soon as possible. This would be a great help to the organisers who want to ensure the best display of all the artworks.
