Curator and featured artist of Kia Mau te Wehi!
Jamie is a Multidisciplinary Artist originally from Turanganui-a-kiwa and has spent the last 20 years residing in Te Whanganui-a-tara. They have always appreciated the vibrant, creative energy present in Pōneke, and can credit much of who they are as an Artist to this beautiful city.
I am honoured to be curating the Visual Arts programme this year for Kia Mau Festival, 6 – 17 June.
My intention is to exhibit tangata whenua and tangata moana Artists, who I admire and who have a strong connection to Pōneke, to showcase their mahi toi within the city landscape we love and are inspired by.
Pōneke will be humming during the Kia Mau Festival, with emerging and established Artists working in many different Artforms presented in participating locations around the city.
Advocating the energy Artists give back to this space and time. Kia Mau Festival is a special event where we as indigenous Artists of all disciplines can come together and celebrate each other.
