About this event

Matariki, the Māori new year. A time for remembering the dead, celebrating new life and planting new crops.

On the 11th and 12th of July, the period of Matariki will be coming to an end and a new seed will be blooming. Manawataki is a two-night creative showcase of poetry, spoken word, and rap.

The showcase encapsulates the kaupapa of Loss, Grief, and Compassion. Throughout the evening, rangatahi will reflect on these themes and speak on their own experiences.

Over these two days, the Manawataki event will be held at the National Library and The Hunter Lounge respectively.
