"So Much There Is" at Studio One Toi Tū

The title “So Much There Is…” emerged from Māpura Studios artist Russell Julian, articulating the "everything" of life: the broad spectrum of people and complexities that saturate our world. The exhibition ran from 25 August to 15 September showcasing the rich diversity of our creative community at Māpura Studios - how we are different from each other and yet united through creativity and human experience.
