Lotteries Award to help establish the first writers’ residency in the home of a Maori writer

The Hone Tuwhare Charitable Trust has just been awarded $100,000 by the Lottery World War One Commemorations, Environment and Heritage Committee to restore and repair the South Otago crib of ‘people’s poet’ Hone Tuwhare (1922 – 2008).

Trust Chair Dr Noel Waite says, “the Trust is delighted that, with the support of Lotteries, we can preserve Hone’s former home as a vital first step in developing a new writers’ and artists’ residency.”

Limited edition Tuwhare prints now available

Four top New Zealand typographic designers have each selected one of Hone’s poems and created a unique interpretation of his words. The poster series was a Finalist in the 2015 New Zealand Best Design Awards.

Each design was screenprinted by Steve Lovett on 300 gram Fabriano paper (560 x 760mm) with Matt Lewis’ Live to Print vegetable-based ink at the Manukau Institute of Technology INKubator printlab. There are two series of prints – Black and Red – and each series was printed in a limited edition of FIVE. The prints are signed by the designer and come with a certificate of authenticity signed by the printmaker and Trustee Rob Tuwhare.

Paying homage to Tuwhare’s generosity and love of the creative arts, each designer brings their individual creativity to a generous collective koha, such that all proceeds from the sale of the prints will be donated to the Hone Tuwhare Trust to develop a creative residency in Hone’s former home at Kaka Point.

Support the Hone Tuwhare Trust and enrich your home by purchasing one or more of these beautiful prints. A catalogue is available here.

Prints are $1000 each (plus postage & packaging).

All proceeds will be donated to the Hone Tuwhare Trust to develop a creative residency in Hone’s former home at Kaka Point

“The project has provided a unique focus for the INKubator printlab . . . the objective was to get the work consistent, mechanical looking almost, yet printed by hand.”
