We are so happy to have you participating in our first project of its kind. Yaniv has been working on the Touch New Zealand project for over two years now and is thrilled to be able finally bring it to the public. Thank you for attending and taking action toward environmental and social sustainability.
Touch New Zealand has been designed as an interactive art event focusing on five of Yaniv's paintings from his Please Do Touch installation, with each painting and correlating station relating to one of our five senses with activities at each station. We invite you to get your own copy of Yaniv's Touch The World Workbook to enhance your experience today.
The event has been set up for you to visit all five stations, in whatever order you prefer, with each station focusing on one of your five senses. Yaniv has created interative activities at each station that invites you to participate in viewing his atwork, understanding the message behind the artworks, and how it relates to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
So let's get going!
