Hihiaua Cultural Centre, Whangārei, Northland, New Zealand
Māori elders and other leaders of Whangārei have long identified the need for the restoration and reinstatement of Maori culture.
They declared that Whangārei needed to unleash the latent potential and build the cultural capacity and capability of Maori, particularly in our youth. Their vision was for a Māori cultural centre where identity and culture would be reclaimed, restored and renewed.
Since its inception, Hihiaua Cultural Centre has hosted exhibitions from a diverse range of artists and craftspeople. Check out our archive of past exhibitions for some inspiration.
