Africans are invited  to be part of Whau Project cultural exchange with tangata whenua/Maori and ACOFI.

Come and share your culture and traditions in a conversation around the meaning of water; what does your culture teach about water? What do you inherit through song, story or rituals about relationships of meaning with water?

Water holds great importance and significance in the Maori world. The relationships we hold with different waters weaves our connection of belonging to the land and creating a home.

In this difficult time it is important that all members of Auckland’s diverse and beautiful communities come together to remember the victims of the Christchurch terror attack.

Some of these victims were our very own African Muslim brothers and sisters. Please join us as we remember those who lost their lives, support each other and heal.

We will have speakers and facilitators to help process this atrocity.

Refreshments will be provided.
