  • Free Admission

View this striking light installation inspired by pouwhenua (land symbols of support) which is located on the Village Green (opposite Lady Jane’s Ice Cream Parlour).

From 5pm each day Pou Rama (Light Posts) will be lit from within, inviting people to walk through the artwork and enjoy the accompanying sound track.

Pou Rama is a series of free-standing light structures representing creative wairua (inspiration) which is generated from te taiao (the environment). The whakairo designs express cycles of creativity, and connections to place.

Designed by Storybox in collaboration with visual artist Desna Whaanga-Schollum (Rongomaiwahine, Ngāti Kahungunu, Ngāti Pahauwera), Pou Rama has featured at the LUX Light Festival (Wellington), Bright Nights (Auckland), LUMA Festival (Queenstown) and Matariki Festival, Aotea Square (Auckland).

While Pou Rama has been on display in several locations before, Rotorua will be the first time where a specially commissioned sound scape will be part of the installation. Composed by renowned taonga pūoro (Māori musical instrument) artist, Al Fraser, this musical accompaniment will emanate from the pou.
