Below is an open invitation for Māori and indigenous students of Anthropology to join a collaborative installation entitled ‘Stirring up Silence’ that will be showcased at the ASAA/NZ conference on 6-7 December 2018.
On behalf of Mahi Tahi ki Pōneke we would like to invite you to be a part of a collaborative installation made with other Māori and indigenous students of Anthropology. This installation intends on responding to Whaea Lily George’s call to ‘stir up the silences’ (2017) surrounding Māori and Anthropology, and decolonisation. The installation will be showcased at the upcoming ASAANZ conference early December.
You don't have to be an artist to contribute. You also do not need to have heaps of free time. If you are interested please join our Facebook group.
If you would like to participate but can not afford conference fees please contact Tarapuhi Vaeau. You do not have to attend the conference to be a part of the installation.
