To Uphold Your Name

Artists Salome Tanuvasa and Quishile Charan have created an exhibition that upholds stories of Pacific female resilience. In this way they empower women, bringing stories to the forefront that are often left out of mainstream history.
This exhibition is also part of a year-long emphasis on art by Māori and Pacific Women, to mark the 125th anniversary of Women’s Suffrage in Aotearoa.  

Accompanying the opening event on the 18th Aug from 10:30 will be a performance by the Samoan Ponsonby methodist youth choir. All are free to come and join in with the singing! Food and drinks will catered by the fantastic Puha & Pakeha
