Airport artwork on sale to support special families  

A unique artwork created in the Wellington Airport terminal is up for sale, raising funds to support families who have children with special and extra needs.

Artist and muralist Em Wafer created the artwork as Wellington Airport’s artist in residence this month. It is now for sale on Trade Me with all funds raised going to the Āhuru Mōwai Trust.

The theme for this piece is “unexpected journeys and life-long learning; arrival in a different time and space in the world with a new pace and perspective“.

Paul and Mandy Latham created the Āhuru Mōwai Trust in 2016 and say the support from Em is humbling.

“The funds raised will support our work to create safe spaces for families, where they can feel supported and understood as they are,” says Paul.

“This will help us create positive experiences for the whole family, making their worlds bigger rather than smaller.

“We’re also grateful to Wellington Airport for supporting this project and helping raise the profile of our work.”

This is the second year that Wellington Airport has hosted Em as artist in residence. Last year her artwork raised $5000 for the Āhuru Mōwai Trust.

The auction closes at 8pm on Wednesday, April 24.
