Experience this gift to Wellington as you wander the waterfront and discover local stories animated in new ways.

Kura Moana focuses on Te Moananui a-Kiwa, the great ocean, and its role as connector between Aotearoa and across all the Pacific nations. I have created a series of installations that invite families and communities to discover iconic locations on the Wellington waterfront in new ways, to think about some of the local histories and stories that relate to this place. It's about travellers, those who dared to traverse the Pacific, people who seek something new, another life."

— Lisa Reihana, Artist in Focus

A map locating Kura Moana installations will be available on festival.nz.
