GENERAL EVENT

MAKING OCEANIA: KOLOKESA UAFĀ MĀHINA-TUAI

FRIDAY 15 MAY – 4.00-5.00PM

HEARTLAND FESTIVAL ROOM, AOTEA SQUARE

The encyclopaedic three-century spanning Ockham NZ Book Awards shortlisted Crafting Aotearoa: A Cultural History of Making in New Zealand and the Wider Moana Oceania proposes a new idea of craft – where Māori, Pākehā, and Moana Oceania knowledges and practices are placed along each other and are given due weight. One of the book’s three editors Kolokesa Uafā Māhina-Tuai (co-founder of Auckland-based cultural consultancy Lagi-Maama) joins artist, curator and author Gregory O’Brien, who in his latest book Always Song in the Water: An Oceanic Sketchbook references his past collaborators (John Pule and Noel McKenna included) to re-imagine ourselves as an Oceanic people on a small island in a big piece of water. The pair range widely to consider making and identity.
