The first ever InMotion Matariki inclusive illuminated all-wheels parade, held in June 2017, was a stunning success.
The Touch Compass team are now planning for the 2018 parade.
One of the highlights of the 2017 event were the lead-up activities: the family fun day and the schools workshop. Activities were targeted at school aged children, and proved to be both educational and great fun. Themes explored related to Matariki (the Maori New Year), disability awareness and science (the science of light and motion).
Once again we're really keen to engage with Auckland schools. In 2018, however, we're hoping it will be even easier for schools to take part. This year we plan to deliver performances and workshops in schools, with all activities geared around the New Zealand school curriculum.
If you are a school teacher in the Auckland area, and would like to learn more about how your school can participate in the 2018 InMotion Matariki programme of events, please register your interest here.
And in the meantime, please enjoy our short video of the 2017 parade ...
