We are proud to be hosting the first Auckland children's art exhibition to commemorate the 72nd anniversary of the Hiroshima bombing.

Organised by Albany Senior High School (ASHS) students Kelsey Cornthwaite, Sunny Lee and Cindy Yoo, Tumanako! is an exhibition commemorating the Hiroshima and Nagasaki nuclear attack in 1945.

"We strongly believe it is important to raise awareness of our country’s decision to have zero nuclear weapons and commemorate the nuclear atrocities in Hiroshima and Nagasaki to ensure that they are never forgotten. We wish to reinforce within our community the importance of hope and peace, especially in this globally unstable time. This is a brilliant opportunity to be inspired by the natural desire of children for a peaceful world to thrive in. We believe that this exhibition will have a positive and powerful impact on our community, building community around the desire for a better and more peaceful world for the children, as they are our future."

Come along and check out the wonderfully poignant artworks from children aged 8-15 years old from all over New Zealand.
