Event programme

Uhi Tai was launched as a three-day exhibition and toi Māori expression of the research findings from the Tangaroa Ararau project, reimagining a marine governance regime with the ocean at the heart of decision-making.

Open from 19 – 21 June 2024, the exhibition presented a curated display of mahi toi (Māori art) specifically crafted for this kaupapa, across a variety of mixed media, including video, audio, print, paint, sculpture, waiata, taonga puoro, tāmoko, weaving, and carving.

A series of wānanga and live demonstrations to deepen the understanding of the project’s key themes was also held alongside the exhibition.
