2005 Amanda Golding launched the Earth people concept, a Wellington wide celebration for Race Relations day, at Newtown Library. This was supported by Desigin Thulkanam from the Human Rights Commission and Joris de Bres attended the event.
There was plenty of discussion while making the figurines about acceptance of people of all ethnicities, and how we may look different from one another but in essence we are all the same, needing food, water and family, we are one people!
Here is a slideshow of some wonderful clay figurines from Earth People events since 2005. Check out the list of participating libraries on our Earth People Event page and come and join us at an Earth People Event in 2009!
