Ruia taitea, toitu taikaka anake. - Peel away the sapwood to expose the heart.
Join artist, storyteller, film maker, Wiremu Grace (Ngāti Toa, Atiawa ki Waikanae, Ngāti Porou) to share kai and kōrero.
Wiremu will share how story has shaped his world view, stories of the past, stories of the present and stories yet to be told.
Everyone has a story. Stories of place, of people, of connection. What is the story you’d like to live, to tell, to experience? How can story shape your life, shape your place, shape the generations to come?
