Whatua Te Muka Tangata

July 4, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Matariki signals the Māori new year, a time for us to come together, reflect on the past and wānanga our future.

If you’re in Auckland this weekend, join us to weaving the threads of humanity through sharing kōrero and weaving stories and perspectives of our shared humanity to address issues together. We’re delighted to have Broadcaster and Māori language proponent Stacey Morrison and Guled as our emcees alongside the Hon Minister Peeni Henare and awe inspiring rangatahi panellists Margaret Harrison-Davis, Bilal Nasier, Guled Mire, Arama Rata and Rebekah & Sue Gee from Asians Supporting Tino Rangatiratanga.

Recent events such as the Black Lives Matter movement, Christchurch tragedy in 2019 and broader issues of ongoing racism in Aotearoa and the world call for these necessary conversations. Join the kōrero to shape the future our rangatahi are calling for.

To top the night off we have performances from the talented poet Mohamed Hassan, award-winning artist and world-builder Jahra Wasasala and experimental Hip Hop movement artist Ooschon. We look forward to seeing you there!

Please arrive promptly for the 3pm start of the Pōwhiri and we will close with kai. To register, click here: https://forms.gle/bih4jVy4bRU4RHrMA
