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.
Please indicate your registration to INDIGENOUS, TATAU – TĀ MOKO category on the registration form.
