MOTAT is celebrating the Māori New Year in radiant style! Visitors of all ages can get involved with the festivities by contributing their artwork to the Matariki-themed lightboxes being created. MOTAT will supply the materials and the light, participants just need to bring their creativity and flair to reflect the core themes of Matariki in cut-out imagery.

These concepts include Tangata Whenua, (the indigenous people of the land), Taiao (the environment), Mātauranga (knowledge), Whakangahau (performance) and Ngā Mahi Toi (the arts). Once completed the artistic installations will be brought to life through illumination during the Museum’s Night Light event from 23 to 25 June.
