Tīramarama is a programme of storytelling for little kids. Delivered in both Māori and English, the goal of Tīramarama is to entertain and delight the youngest members of our families.

As winter closes in around us the stars of Matariki rise. Storytellers Te Kahureremoa Taumata and Khali Phillips-Barbara want to help you celebrate by sharing knowledge, stories and song. Their story telling sessions are interactive and captivating to a range of audiences.A key feature of traditional Matariki celebrations was storytelling for young and old alike.

Many different kinds of stories were told - stories of heroes and adventurers, of mythic characters and ancestral leaders. Stories too were told of Matariki and its appearance in the night sky.

This event is part of the Matariki Rising 2017 programme.
