Event Details

Whiria te tangata, whiria ngā toi, whiria ngā hapori. Weave the people, weave the arts, weave the community.

Join us for a day of wānanga around how artists represent their communities through live performance. Hear how Māori performing arts has shaped communities, weaved relationships, provide opportunities for healing, knowledge sharing, laughter and innovation, with kōrero from some of Aotearoa’s leading Māori live performance creatives:

Tamati Patuwai (Ngāti Whātua)
Amber Curreen (Ngā Puhi)
Ani-Piki Tuari (Ngāti Porou, Te Aitanga a Hauiti, Ngāti Kahungunu, Rongomaiwahine, Te Whānau-ā-Apanui, Ngāi Tūhoe)
Janaye Henry (Ngāti Kahi ki Whangaroa)

Facilitated by Rutene Spooner (Ngāti Porou, Ngāruahine, Ngāti Kahungunu), grab a kapu tī and join in the conversation about where Māori comedy, theatre, musical theatre and circus are heading into the new year. 

This event is held in the Wintergarden in The Civic, from 2-5pm. Tamariki welcome.
