Generation Taihape

Click into this page for lots of information and FAQ about the project

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.
