Delve into the intricacies of feminism in New Zealand and examine the everyday realities of the quest for equality. We’ll talk mana wahine theory, sex and activism.

Your esteemed panel of speakers for the evening is made up of poet, playwright, fiction writer and musician Courtney Sina Meredith, Māori, women’s and LGBT rights advocate Dr Ngahuia Te Awekotuku, social and critical accounting researcher Dr Pala Molisa and Rosanna Raymond, an innovator of the contemporary Pasifika art scene as a long-standing member of the art collective the Pacific Sisters, and founding member of the SaVAge K’lub.

Throughout the course of the evening you'll be moved by vignettes from Okareka Theatre Company’s Mana Wahine - a powerful performance which emanates the life force of women. The exhibition Kōrero Mai, Kōrero Atu will also be open for a Late-night viewing.

Entertainment:
Mana Wahine
Mana Wahine is an all-female work by Okareka Dance Company that draws strength from traditional Māori culture to illustrate a tapestry of dance, theatre, and film.

This powerful collage of imagery and movement transcends time and space. Death, life, land, and creatures inspire the performance which emanates the life force of women. This production is based on the true story of Te Aokapurangi, a young maiden from Mokoia Island who single-handedly saved her people from slaughter.

Late-night exhibition opening:
In Kōrero Mai, Kōrero Atu, acclaimed artists Areta Wilkinson and Te Rongo Kirkwood showcase their artwork alongside historical objects from the Museum’s collection. Step inside this unique world of beautifully crafted objects in this new exhibition, open late for your enjoyment.
