A performance stage will be available and other educational opportunities are envisaged.
There will be opportunity to have visual input into your nation space through collaboration with local artists during the pre-festival gathering.
In the week leading up to the festival Māori artists and the local iwi are inviting those indigenous artists registered for the Tatau Tā moko area to a hosted marae live-in experience of shared indigenous art, music, culture and tattoo traditions.
Please fill in the booth enquiry and nominate your main nation/culture of representation. Early Bird registration will help us ensure that we can keep a space for you (limited spaces) so we can keep you informed as to the artists participating.
