The KETE Project ®

Kids Empowered through Technology & Education

Providing children in rural New Zealand communities an opportunity to make their mark on the world despite geographical location by exhibiting their art work in New York City.
We partnered with the most Northern school in New Zealand – Te Hapua – and neighboring school – Ngātaki –
to engage 5-13 year old students in an art project that tapped into creativity, self identity and imagination.
The Moko Pop Up Shop proudly presented student artworks during November-December 2015 in New York City.
KETE Project  sales from our Pop-Up Shop generated funds via the KETE Community to support the school’s digital curriculum.
