The ‘triangle’ in Taihape, proudly displays hand formed tiles that resulted from an initiative by the Taihape & District Community Arts Council. These tiles display the names and art of Taihape people, organisations and businesses. There is also a record of those, who in 1994 re-enacted the first European settlers traverse of the Ruahine ranges as a 100 year commemoration.
Another quarter century is nearly upon us.
There is a strong community interest in repeating the project.
