We're feeling a lil yachty.
Leilani Kake is starting a series of hui where people can practise their reo Maaori without too much formality, lubricating their arero with wine and cheeses, and discussing the artworks at Vunilagi Vou. Te Reo Toitoko, it's called, playing on toi: art, and tautoko: support. Gallery founder, Ema Tavola is also here, chiming in to make sure we've all got the crucial info we need about how to get there.
(First one kicks off on Thursday Jan 23 at Vunilagi Vou, 4/256 Great South Road, Otahuhu)
Next Lesley Dixon tells us about the journeys in and out of collaboration and connection her otherwise practice in solitude in large-scale sand drawing has taken her on, and the many ways in which other people have become involved at times.
Lee's back next Sunday - thanks so much to Finn for doing SUCH a great job on the Kids' Show over the holidays!
