      Abstract

      An artist’s workshop was held at Lawaki Beach House from 21-28th September, 2013. Pacific cultures and societies are central to the USP mission, vision and values and a theme that permeates every aspect of the Strategic plan. Central to the positioning of the university as the international leader in Pacific Studies, Arts and Culture is the creation of an internally recognized centre for visual and performing arts and pacific heritage which will showcase and promote pacific talent in all areas of art. The idea of an innovative interdisciplinary program, such as the one described here, which draws upon creative expression, community experiences and academic research on climate change to support and underlie these goal. The aims of our workshop were twofold. It was an opportunity for our Centre artists to bond more formally as a group, and to learn new skills and observe different art processes. To learn more about environmental issues and use our art as a medium to convey information and educate children and the public regarding these issues.
