From My Window

In 2020, The New York Times asked artists to capture the view from their city windows during lockdown.

Inspired by this project, Toitoi invited some of New Zealand’s amazing young artists to create a response of their own. We have published the first few of these incredible pictures online in a series called From My Window.

Guide your students to write their own response to the text.


Work with the text to inspire your students to create an artwork of their own.

Encourage your students to submit their work for publication and begin a conversation with other young New Zealanders through the arts.
