The Treaty of Waitangi was signed in Auckland at Karaka Bay 179 years ago during its voyage through the country. Hundreds of people left their mark on our nation’s founding document, establishing a unique partnership in Aotearoa New Zealand.
Build a pattern from the pile prepared for you and create a mural of interlocking triangles on any scale you like – macro, micro or massive. These can represent the meeting of ideas, peoples and cultures using triangles, an important symbol in art across the world.

This interactive activity will trigger problem-solving, pattern making and of course, creativity. Work in teams or fly solo as you work to design and decorate geometric shapes together.
