Description

In this two hour Workshop Ruha Fifita will share with participants how to paint on tapa. Participants will have the opportunity to try this themselves.

One large Tapa piece features in the exhibition and you are welcome to ask her about that piece.

This workshop is suitable for 13 years and upwards.


Biography

Ruha Fifita was born in Vava’u, Tonga, in 1990 and has spent most of her life with her family in Vava’u, Ha’apai, and Tongatapu. In 2006 she co-founded ON THE SPOT (OTS), an arts organisation aimed at exploring and utilising the arts as a tool for community building. She sees Tongan culture as a living entity and hopes her artwork inspires young people to take ownership of it. Ruha has a degree in Creative Industries from the Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane. She is currently Pacific Arts Research Assistant for the GOMA and is extensively involved in community building in the Goodna and scenic rim area.
