The Maori Women's Welfare League of Aotea (Great Barrier Island), have been hosting exhibitions on the island since 1998. The organisation plays an effective role in the cultural, social and economic development of the island's community and their exhibitions are a celebrated annual event. In 2008, the organisation extends its reach beyond the island through a group exhibition at Artstation, providing an opportunity for Auckland City residents to experience the essence of island life.

This exhibition will generate and communicate the energy of the island to Auckland City viewers."
