2013 Creative New Zealand cultural exchange with Tonga


Six Tongan artists will visit New Zealand this month as part of a cultural exchange to share their knowledge of heritage arts and celebrate the close ties between the people of Tonga and New Zealand.

The artists will participate in a free public programme of workshops, demonstrations and talks at Mangere Arts Centre – Ngā Tohu o Uenuku and the Auckland War Memorial Museum. They will also take a tour of the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa and meet with local Māori and Pacific artists to exchange cultural knowledge.

 

Exhibition aims to raise Pacific voices through art


The Campbelltown Arts Centre launched the ” exhibition in early September.

It includes nine artists, whom curator Keren Ruki says were chosen to create an exhibition of Pacific art that covered many parts of the region.
