Kahui Whetu

Our project is inspired by the ancient Māori tale of Matariki, originating from Tāwhirimatea, the god of winds. We've invited artists to visually interpret this story, creating unique pieces that serve as both educational tools and cultural celebrations. Matariki, the Pleiades star cluster, holds a special place in Māori tradition, symbolising the New Year and fostering reflection and connection. In our space, you'll discover commissioned artworks that bring the Matariki narrative to life, offering a captivating glimpse into its cultural significance.
