Presbyterian Support's iconic Mosaicked building is the first purpose-built Creative Space in New Zealand and is a significant public artwork. Designed by our students, local artists, and the Mosaic Hapu, the word Mosaic was chosen to describe the service and means putting the pieces together to create the whole, a symbol of the Mosaic community.
Mosaic is an innovative support service offered by Enliven Disability Services that works alongside young people under 65 living with disability.
Their aim is to enable our clients by offering choice, building confidence and skills. We empower and support our clients to live an ordinary life as valued members of the community.
Their Mosaic programmes have a strong creative emphasis.
Mosaic is the home of ‘Outsider Art’ in Hawke’s Bay, offering creative opportunities for students who specialise in this genre.
Students can develop existing and new skills in structured group courses or as individuals with the opportunity to exhibit their work.
Creative Space programmes include:
- Courses in Painting, drawing, printmaking & mixed media work
- Independent art studio spaces
- Mosaic groups
- Jewellery making
- Maori art
- Bone carving
- Clay group
- Wood work
- Craft groups
A range of other programmes are available on site and in the wider community, that reflect the aspirations and interests of the Mosaic community. The student-driven term programme is offered in an inclusive and safe environment, that promotes choice, increased independence, education and personal development for students. We aim to support students to have the life that they choose and take a valued role in their community.
