Maori Cultural Exchange
Nau mai haere mai
Africans are invited to be part of Whau Project cultural exchange with tangata whenua/Maori and ACOFI.
Come and share your culture and traditions in a conversation around the meaning of water; what does your culture teach about water? What do you inherit through song, story or rituals about relationships of meaning with water?
Water holds great importance and significance in the Maori world. The relationships we hold with different waters weaves our connection of belonging to the land and creating a home.
Guided by Maori traditions, this community arts project is about sharing the unique traditions within all our diverse cultures living today within the Whau River area as we look forward to a shared future.
As part of a locally funded community arts project in the New Lynn area we invite you to share with us your communities’ songs dance that acknowledges your ancestral memories of your waters and cultural traditions. Your cultural offering will contribute in co-creating a sound and visual art installation for the New Lynn area that celebrates the common connection we are holding today in calling Aotearoa home.
Bring: Your memories, your cultural knowledge, family and friends; and a small plate of food to share
Facilitated by Cathy Livermore (artist and project leader) and Tamati Patuwai(cultural advisor)
