Te Papa / October 2009

December 2009 | August 2009
    • Finding our voices
      • Earlier this week Hongoeka marae in Plimmerton was filled with the sounds of taonga pūoro (Maori musical instruments) – accompanied by the buzzing of  sanders and the call of tuis flitting among the flaxes. I was one of twenty Te Papa staff who took part in a three day wānanga on taonga pūoro, tutored by members of Hau Manu.

    • Otis Frizzell at Te Papa next week
      • Givealittle approached artist Otis Frizzell to incorporate these messages of support into a special artwork to be gifted to the people of Samoa. Limited editions of the work will also be made available with the monies raised going to the Red Cross. Otis will be in Te Papa’s Wellington Foyer on Level 2 working on this very special artwork from Monday 12 to Friday 16 October so come along, have a chat to Otis and see art in progress! If you can’t make it in to Te Papa, check out our flickr site for progress pics!
