Our Place to Stand: Tauranga Arts Festival

Our Place to Stand: Tauranga Arts Festival

Six speakers have 7 minutes each to explore what it means to be a New Zealander, whether by birth or adoption, and the identity that comes with breathing the air of this chain of islands between Polynesia and Antarctica. Their notion of tūrangawaewae – places where we feel especially empowered and connected – will also be discussed. Questions from the audience encouraged.

Speakers: Helene Wong, Shamubeel Eaqub, Paula Morris, Vincent O’Malley, Jeanette Fitzsimons and Quinton Bidois
