Atarau - an immersive art, light and sound experience.

Operating hours:
Saturday 21 March, 3.30 - 7.30pm
Sunday 22 March, 3.30 - 7.30pm

Social Ritual are proud to present Atarau on Maungauika (North Head Historic Reserve).

This is a free, outdoor, public event made possible with the generous support of the local community, Devonport-Takapuna Local Board, Auckland Council and the Tupuna Maunga Authority.

Experience a multidisciplinary art event on the much-loved Maungauika (North Head Historic Reserve), which seeks to explore Mana Hononga Tangata, the living connection between Maungauika, and us, the people.

A collaborative team of local 22 artists, creatives and thought leaders will present unique interpretations of Mana Honing Tangata (living connection), using elements of sound, dance, visual art, poetry and performance.

Audiences can explore a reimagined tunnel network transformed by light, sound and sculptural intervention. Drop into a sound-bath while absorbing the surrounding natural beauty.

There will be a variety of delicious local food & beverage options available. Eftpos and cash payment available.

How to plan your trip.
This event is suitable for all ages.

Be respectful and courteous of Maungauika, the artists and art forms on display when you are moving around the event space.

Wear sturdy, covered shoes at all times. Be cautious of where you are placing your feet when you are walking around the area, as there are several areas with uneven surfaces and steep cliff drop offs.

Atarau is a zero waste event. Bring your own plate, cup and cutlery for refreshments from one of the food trucks. Compostable packaging will be available, thanks to the generous support of Para Kore Tamaki.

Maungauika (North Head Historic Reserve) will be closed to vehicles during the event and there will be limited on-street parking.

A regular shuttle service will be provided from the base of the maunga on Takarunga Road for those in need of assistance.

Ferry timetable available online.
