Nuclear Free New Zealand Photo Exhibition at the Depot Artspace Devonport

May 24, 2017 - June 14, 2017

The Depot Artspace, 28 Clarence Street, Devonport, Auckland

27 May – 14 June

Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF)  and the Devonport Peace Group are delighted to present an exhibition of historic photographs from Gil Hanly and John Miller, two eminent artists who have spent many years recording the important events in our social history, particularly peace activities.

In June 1987 the Nuclear Free Zone, Disarmament and Arms Control Act, the legislation making Aotearoa New Zealand a nuclear-free zone, was  passed.  Devonport led the way in 1981 with a declaration by the Borough Council.  Many other local councils followed that example.

 Devonport  is  a very  appropriate place to celebrate this 30th anniversary, which has become an expression of our  national identity.

Programme of events:

Saturday 27 May, 2.00-3.30 p.m. Opening

Events after school during the week – make a peace flag, peace poppy, paper crane.

Saturday 10 June, 12.30 p.m. Join us at The Depot Artspace to meet some of the people who
