Experience new audio visual work by the Mana Moana Collective, projected onto a waterscreen in He Whairepo Lagoon.

Mana Moana 2022 is a series of short art films fusing poetry, dance, song, painting, digital sculpture, photography, animation, music, taonga pūoro, and sound design. It brings together Māori and Pacific visual artists, poets, musicians and choreographers from across Aotearoa to weave art and technology together. The result is a multimedia and video artworks series which speak to our relationships with water and the oceans and the need for collective action to ensure their survival. This is art activism. Art that will change and inspire.

Mana Moana 2022 includes the Pacific Voices Series: 10 video artworks that were created for SPREP (Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme) for presentation at COP26 in Glasgow in 2021. These films are a call for action on climate change, especially on how climate change is affecting lives in the Pacific Islands. There are also two new video artworks created by the Mana Moana Collective, funded by Creative New Zealand.

As we grapple with climate change, our futures will be linked in new ways. Water is connective tissue - the seas connect us all between the islands of the Pacific, Mana Moana projects its stories on these waters.

Co-curated by Rachael Rakena (Ngāi Tahu, Ngā Puhi) and Mike Bridgman (Tonga, Ngāti Pākeha) from Massey University’s College of Creative Arts, special curator of Pacific Voices content is Dr. Karlo Ulu’ave’ Mila and produced by Storybox.
