Join Lynette Shum (Oral History Adviser, Alexander Turnball Library) and historian Nigel Murphy for a walking tour that traces Chinese histories through central Wellington. The rich history of the Chinese in Wellington is largely invisible to the casual observer, yet if we look beyond the surface, the past begins to reveal itself.

This 2-hour walking tour points out sites of significance for Wellington's Chinese community including businesses, eateries and Haining Street's 'Chinatown'. The tour concludes with a pot of Chinese tea at the Poon Fah Association clubrooms.

About AAAH2018:
The Asian Aotearoa Arts Huì aims to support Asian New Zealand arts practitioners through presenting practice, sharing ideas and networking. The Huì aims to make visible settlement histories in Aotearoa and the creative cross-cultural conversations generating from our relationships with Māori, Pasifika, Pākeha, other migrant communities and with each other.

This is a result of five years of sustained creative conversations and collaboration since the inaugural Chinese New Zealand Artists Hui at Corbans Estate, Auckland (2013) and the first Asian New Zealand Artists Hui at Te Tuhi in Auckland (2017).

AAAH2018 will be taking place this year from 3 - 23 September in Wellington, Aotearoa and will be hosted by Massey University College of Creative Arts (CoCA) and National Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. All Welcome.

Registrations are now open for the Saturday Symposium (22 Sep) at Te Papa:

And weekend events, with more to come. All welcome.
