Event description

Description

Join Connect the Dots facilitators Andrea, Selina and the two foxies, for a relaxed conversation drawing connections between the ideas and themes in four sculptures. This tour will focus on the theme of Place.

This tour is highly recommended for visitors who enjoy a gentle pace. There is approximately a 5-8 min walk between the sculptures and these are accessible by mobility equipment. If you feel this amount of walking might be too much, please book on the Tours on 30 November and 21 December for works that are in closer proximity to each other.

Stools will be provided so that we can comfortably chat for a time at each of the artworks.

Please be sure to read the FAQs for important information that will help you to get the most out of your time with us!


FAQs

How long is the Tour?

The tour itself runs for an hour, and then you have the option to join us in the cafe for an morning coffee to continue sharing ideas or just chatting about the weather. We will have reserved a table.

Is morning tea included?

Unfortunately we cannot cover the cost of morning tea, so please bring some money. The Miko menu can be found here http://www.aucklandbotanicgardens.co.nz/media/2205/winter-2017-miko-menu.pdf

How fit do I need to be?

The sculptures are scattered throughout the gardens, and Connect the Dots have designed four tours to accommodate different levels of fitness and mobility. Please be sure to book the tour that best suits your needs.

What do I need to wear?

Please wear comfortable shoes and a hat, and you may like to bring an umbrella to shield you from the sun. Please apply complimentary sunscreen before the tour - you can find this at the front desk when you arrive.

What else do I need to bring?

Please bring a bottle of water.

Where will we meet?

The tours begin just outside the Visitor Centre, on the park side, and Connect the Dots will have two fox terriers with them to help you identify them!

What if it is raining?

Please contact us if the weather has put you off by texting 021 990 370. We will assess on the day as sometimes showers pass quite quickly!

What if I need to cancel?

We appreciate that things can come up that mean you are no longer able to make it. We would appreciate as much notice as possible so that we can offer this opportunity to someone else. If you book more than 6 tickets you will be considered a group and will be expected to give 48 hours notice.

Dogs?

Yes! Connect the Dots' Make Moments programme comes with two foxies. They will be kept on a leash at all times and are very friendly.

Why is it free?

Through the support of Friends of the Gardens.
