Nuku Tewhatewha: The Heart of The Dowse
Come and discover the secrets of this national treasure.
As the sole remaining pillar from the Kīngitanga movement, Nuku Tewhatewha, has lessons for us all. Students will become experts on the pātaka, past and present, and be inspired to consider their own whakapapa and connections to history, stories and explore Māori art forms.
This programme is available in The Dowse Art Museum. Please note, Nuku Tewhatewha is currently closed for refurbishment, and will reopen late 2020.
