Tuitui Kōrero

Tuitui Kōrero is a lecture series tied to Te Papa’s exhibition Kahu Ora | Living Cloaks.

Each of the lectures focuses on a different issue faced by contemporary Māori weavers – from intellectual property and conservation to the retention and handing down of knowledge.

They will also explore recent developments in research and provide opportunities to network with other practitioners.

Tuitui Kōrero is presented in partnership with Toi Māori Aotearoa/Māori Arts New Zealand and Te Roopu Rāranga Whatu o Aotearoa/Māori Weavers of New Zealand.
