Children, now and in the future, will increasingly have to cope with the social and environmental impacts of climate change, yet they remain largely excluded from the dialogue about climate.
°TEMP is a unique initiative in West Auckland that brings art and science together to help us imagine and respond to our changing climate, through five themes: air (O-Tū-Kapua) water, weather, food and shelter.
O-Tū-Kapua (‘what clouds see’) introduces atmospheric science to children in a meaningful way, using imagery, language, the digital, music and other creative activities that enable participation, conversation, questioning and understanding.

The Innovators is an exhibition that celebrates not only the achievements but the entire process of innovation, from conceptualisation to creation and explores the learnings from setbacks overcome along the way.
Gain a unique insight into the personal attributes and thought processes of ordinary Kiwis who have achieved extraordinary feats. The exhibition explores the personalities and contributions of the well-known public figures, and equally importantly, their lesser known colleagues who work behind the scenes but without whom the innovations would not be possible.
Innovators sharing their stories and hard-won wisdom include Peter Beck from Rocket Lab, Rod Drury from Xero, Ian Taylor from Animation Research Limited, Frances Valintine from The Mind Lab by Unitec and Dr Keith Alexander from Springfree Trampoline.
