Auckland Museum and Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center will co-present Te Whāinga: A Culture Lab on Civility in Auckland this Labour Weekend (25-28 October). 

The immersive four-day festival is free to the public and will feature a world-class collective of local, national, and international artists, scholars, and cultural practitioners, who will examine the term civility in parallel to the Tuia 250 Commemorations.

Held in Silo 6 and Silo Park, situated in the area of Te Waitematā, a place of rich cultural narratives and a meeting place between land and the sea the festival will allow visitors to Te Whāinga to have the opportunity to immerse themselves in over a dozen new and original art experiences, performances and interactive activities. This is a unique opportunity to engage and collaborate with some of today’s most creative talents to explore what it truly means to coexist within our communities, societies, and humanity.
