The history of New Zealand is both challenging and astounding. We will embark on a journey of discovery tracing the earliest known Polynesian migration to NZ in the 8th century AD. Our journey will take us from an appreciation of ancient Māori taonga, through to contemporary expressions of art and culture in NZ. Learn how Māori have honoured and nurtured creativity throughout the challenges of colonisation and how Māori art continues to deliver a powerful art discourse today.
Anyone with a passion for New Zealand and our history should come and learn more about the expression of our cultural art practices. Be inspired by a deeper understanding of Māori history and culture.
I had the pleasure of teaching an enthusiastic school of art practitioners about the complexity and significance of Māori art and creative expression. Be inspired by a deeper understanding of Māori history and culture.
