Whānui: Project Pepeha - Public Presentation 9 March.
Celebrating cultural and intergenerational ties, this cross-cultural collaboration brings te reo Māori to Chinese and Sāmoan communities through their native mother tongues.
Participants have learned, engaged, and collaborated to share and understand their pepeha – a way of introducing yourself in Māori. This event is a culmination of their four week journey learning at Te Whare o Matariki in Howick and Te Wānanga o Aotearoa in Māngere.
Come and witness the results of their experience at this family friendly intercultural arts event.
SAT 9 MARCH, 10AM-12PM
Outside Māngere Town Centre Library
Short film vignettes will also be presented as part of the project throughout Auckland Arts Festival at participating Auckland City Libraries.
