“We have some amazing people who do incredible work for our community, and it’s time to salute their achievements,” says Albert Eden Chair Peter Haynes.
Māpura Studios board member and volunteer tutor John Ferriss is one such amazing person.
John received an Local Heroes Albert-Eden Award 2019 in may this year recognizing his outstanding work.
Criteria included: how their work benefits Albert-Eden people and communities; how long they have been doing what they do; and any other significant factors, such as their influence in wider Auckland.
Congratulations John from all of the staff and students at Māpura Studios.
