Art science and Te Reo are behind a Dunedin charity auction tonight raising money for a group of kura kaupapa students to attend an academic conference in Canada later next month.

The Aihuka Art Auction gets underway tonight at the Otago musuem and features works of art with moths as the students going to the conference are presenting their work "Science through an indigenous lens - a moth study."

A number of well known Dunedinites have contributed to the art on display as well as well know scientists from around the country.

There is also a give a little page raising money for the trip.

Dr Barbara Anderson is the driving force behind the project and talks to Jesse about their goal tonight.
