The Roots Creative Entrepreneurs were part of the Pacific Showcase at the Cloud in the Auckland viaduct.
The Roots members were involved with painting murals on the containers to reflect the themes of music, cuisine, family day, travel and health & wellness.
Also, the Roots showed a demonstration of bamboo sculptures being built on site. These demonstrations are a preview of the next event The Roots Pasifika.
