An exhibition of commissioned works by local artists asked to contemplate ‘The Power of Shelter’.

No matter who we are or where we come from, we all deserve to have a decent place to live. We deserve to feel strength and stability day after day. We deserve to know we have the power to take care of ourselves and build our own futures. At Habitat for Humanity, this is what unites us. Through shelter, we empower. Our shared vision is a world where everyone has a decent place to live. Because you, me, we — we’re all humans. And every single one of us deserves the opportunity for a better future.

All works will be sold at Auction with profits going to Habitat for Humanity Northland’s ‘Together We Build’ fundraiser. 20% of the auction price will be given to the artist. The ‘Together We Build’ fundraiser aims to raise $100,000 to build another home inside Northland Regional Corrections Facility.

Habitat puts great value on this partnership with Corrections. We see building homes as a process that will not only benefit the deserving family who will one day own the home, but also provides a great opportunity for the prisoners to gain work experience, preparing them for a career in construction while also helping a Northland family in need. Artwork from the prisoners will also be displayed in the Whangarei Art Museum and auctioned off. Help Habitat empower a Northland whanau through our Home Ownership Programme. Together we can make a difference.
