My River Goes With Me

2 May- 18 September 2022

My River Goes With Me is a collaboration between Wellington-based artist Johnson Witehira (Ngāpuhi, Tamahaki) and Winnipeg-based artist Julie Nagam (Métis, German, Syrian). Together they have created an immersive experience that highlights water as a metaphor to bridge geographical distance and cultural tradition. Students will consider their connection to Te Awakairangi and the stories we can share about our own place and culture.
