Talanoa Mau, curated by Lemi Ponifasio

Monday 24 and Tuesday 25 February 2020

Soundings Theatre, Te Papa

Schedule information

Talanoa Mau will be hosted by Te Ahukaramū Charles Royal, an independent researcher, consultant and composer from Aotearoa/New Zealand.

The conference will follow a Speaker/Responder model, with speakers having 20 minutes to present their viewpoint, followed by a 10 minute response from another presenter. In addition, there will be one 60-90mins panel discussion each day.

The Speaker/Responder format has been designed to find unexpected spaces of clarity by placing different forms of expression and cultural lenses alongside each other, to ensure a dynamic environment.

Please find below a broad overview of the order of events and presenters for each day of Talanoa Mau. The final schedule will be released in December.
