What's up for grabs:

A one night weeknight stay at the lighthouse BnB in island bay, wellington worth $180 (no set expiry date on voucher) & a double pass to empire cinemas in island bay (expires June).

Who are we?

We are a group of creative adults with Intellectual Disabilities from IDEA services.

We won this as a prize from the Island Bay Festival’s “dress the fence" competition.

We went with a "under the sea" theme & spent 2 weeks creating a full installation for our fence & surrounding garden.

We painted all over the curb side, painted driftwood in bright & wacky colours. We covered shells in glitter & made fish to go on our yellow submarine mural.

Little moulded sandcastles complete with their own flags looked so cute lining the fence! Translucent Jellyfish floated down from the trees. Barely any of the front gardens were not overtaken with some sort of underwater wondrousness.

As part of the festival we also made various crafts & sweet treats which we sold from our front yard stall on the day.

We had many visitors (including the sun!), loads of people stopped, came in and said it really gave them a kick, & put a smile on their dial.

Our crew worked so hard on this project, and we’re so happy with how it all came together & that everyone stepped up to help out – all taking on different roles.
