what's happened

TUU PUNA A TOI

Senior school students in Māngere-Ōtāhuhu local board area were invited to Tuu Puna a Toi Arts wānanga. Themed by ancient narratives for Te Ahiwaru of Makaurau Marae, Tuu Puna a Toi embraced the potential of artistic and creative youth aspiring to an arts career.

Wānanga attendees experienced an overnight stay (on the night of 19 July) at Makaurau Marae, met and were inspired by profiled local Māori artists and shared in a local Māori narrative tour of Ihumaatao Pa and Te Ahiwaru, Te Waiohua people.
