Te Tuhi, Arts Out East and Botany Town Centre are excited to present the Dreamscape Wall at Botany Town Centre. Born during lockdown, Dreamscape was an invitation from Te Tuhi and Arts Out East, to tamariki and rangatahi from East Auckland schools (primary and secondary), to design a collage and send in a photo of it. With more than 70 collages featured in a permanent revolving online exhibition, Te Tuhi are delighted that a selection of these will now be seen in real life in the special Dreamscape Wall in The Lane at Botany Town Centre.

To celebrate this exhibition and the creativity of East Auckland, each month, Botany Town Centre are offering a $100 Gift Card, as a prize draw. To enter, just visit the Dreamscape Wall, chose your favourite collage, take a selfie beside it, post it to Instagram tagging @botanytowncentre @tetuhiart and @artsouteast and you will automatically be in the draw to win!

Dreamscape Wall is part of the newest amenity at Botany Town Centre, a beautiful space in The Lane, where shoppers and visitors can relax and recharge. Sink into the comfortable sofas, grab a book from the community book exchange, watch the kids play in the soft-play area, or catch up on emails or after-school work at one of the big tables – and enjoy the Dreamscape Wall.
