Ron Te Kawa presents Matariki, a story told through quilts and puppets in the gallery, entry free, no bookings required.

The puppet show explores how the gods Ranginui and Papatuanuku were split apart by their children.

The two gods’ divine children all started life jammed together fighting with their brothers and sisters, but they burst apart from their parents, and each found a part of the natural world to became the god of.
