Join Associate Professor Steve Gibbs as we explore the connection between taonga held in two overseas exhibitions and Tairāwhiti - how they came to be there, his experience of encountering them, and what contemporary artists might learn about the artworks from our creative past.

About Tuia 250 ki Tūranga 2018
Over the weekend October 5 - 8, Tuia 250 ki Tūranga is presenting a number of events for the community designed to encourage us to explore the multiple histories of our region through art, kōrero, wānanga, sailing, karakia and good old fashioned manaakitanga. Tipuna kōrero will be shared in the library for whānau, the waka hourua Tairāwhiti will be hosting visits and sails, the MV Takitimu will be taking people out into the Bay with two storytellers and historians on board ready to share insights from the past 1000 years, there will be a discussion panel, local people sharing their insights, a live cross at the Museum to an exhibition half a world away featuring local taonga, and dawn karakia as we remember the fallen and share parakuihi afterwards.

It’s all open to the whole community.
