Wāhine is a touring multi-media exhibition that amplifies Māori women’s voices around Aotearoa, offering our communities the opportunity to be enriched by their life stories while fostering mutual understanding.

Through personalised sound stories and portrait photography, Wāhine is an immersive exhibition inviting communities to come together, be inspired, and learn from the raw, honest, and vulnerable stories of Māori women.

While it travels around Aotearoa, Wāhine expands each time it changes locations by inviting a wahine from a local iwi to join the kaupapa and hold space for the other women.

Here in Ōtepoti Dunedin, the special Phyllis Smith (Waitaha, Kāti Mamoe, Ruahikihiki, Kāti Huirapa ki Puketeraki, Kāi Tahu) will be joining the kaupapa and the exhibition's journey around the country.

Please join us to inaugurate this special taonga. The event will be opened by Kāti Huirapa ki Puketeraki Rūnaka​ with a mihi whakatau. The artist Loren Pasquier will be present for this event as well as the special Phyllis Smith, and her whānau. We would love to see you there.

By holding a sacred space for women to share their experiences, our hope is to inspire compassion in us all and ignite a wider sense of belonging, community, and togetherness.
