Gap Filler - AyoAyo

This phase has seen the organisation work with members of the Nigerian Canterbury Association to create a mancala board.

Known as an Ayoayo in Nigeria, mancala is a game that involves moving pieces or seeds from ‘dishes’ usually carved into a piece of wood.

Local wood worker, Jim Goodwin has been the main woodcarver creating the mancala from a giant log that was kindly donated to the project by Tree Tech. The log is part of one of the black poplar trees that was felled in Hagley Park earlier this year.

Running from November until February 2018
