Featuring the work of Gil Hanly, John Miller, Jos Wheeler and Natalie Robertson, Tūrangawaewae is an exhibition of powerful and moving photographs which brings elements and issues from Hīkoi into perspective for Māori today. In particular, it looks at the way Māori are trying to maintain their traditions and culture in a continually changing and rapidly evolving Aotearoa.
Tūrangawaewae is an acknowledgement of the place one is connected to through whakapapa. It’s a place where one feels empowered. It’s a foundation, a place in the world, a home.
Tūrangawaewae traces a variety of people’s journeys back to the papakāinga through the lenses of some of our finest photographers.
Sensitive, authentic and compelling, Hīkoi is the world premiere of the debut, award-winning play by Nancy Brunning. See it at Auckland Arts Festival.
