Kotahitanga, by local artist Theo Arraj, was created during the Kāpiti Coast Art Trail 2022, to provide a vibrant and meaningful entrance to Raumati Village.
There is so much mana in the word “kotahitanga”, even just saying it aloud radiates a particular energy. Oneness, togetherness, unity is so important for us as a community, as a nation, as a species in order to co-create a positive future.
Kotahitanga was commissioned by the Raumati Village Business Association with a grant from Kāpiti Coast District Council’s COVID-19 Recovery Fund for Arts. The fund aimed to raise community resilience after lockdowns through projects that encouraged local participation in the arts and increased the range and diversity of arts projects in the community.
