Te wiki o te reo Māori: Children’s stories and sustainable art
Celebrate te wiki o te reo Māori with us. The theme for 2018 is Kia Kaha te Reo Māori — 'Strength for an endangered language comes from its status, people being aware of how to support revitalisation, people acquiring and using it and from the language having the right words and terms to be used well for any purpose.'

10:30pm to 12:30pm
Free. No booking required.
