This is an invitation to the Māpura community of artists, support workers, volunteers, staff and the wider world to create beautiful, fantastical, over the top, simple, bizarre, magical, mythical masks, gloves and/or costumes with whatever medium you like using any materials you can find. 

Many in the special needs community especially those living in supported group homes or needing support in their homes are feeling vulnerable at present due to Covid 19. The needs of our community should be seen and heard. The safety and emotional well-being of our community is crucial and this is a creative way to express yourself or show your support for others in the community.

Drawing from the visually powerful history of masks and costume, create an artwork we can share on social media. Your artwork can be as simple or elaborate as you like! Tell your story, express yourself and be visible!

Create your mask/costume inspired artwork through drawing, photograph, sculpture, video performance, sound, music, dance, movement, poetry, assemblage, collaboration etc,

 and email to:  alex@mapurastudios.org.nz
or post it to social media with the hashtag #mapuramasks
