Bite-size Talk | Matariki – Māori New Year
Tuesday 2 July 2024, 2 – 2.30pm | Worcester City Art Gallery and Museum
The arrival of Matariki (the Pleiades star cluster) in the winter sky brings the Māori New Year. It is a time for communities to gather and remember, a time of peace and celebration.
This talk will explore how New Zealand observes the Māori New Year, which takes place in 2024 around Friday 28 June.
Worcester City Art Gallery and Museum is committed to working with the Indigenous cultures that are represented in its collections and worked with the tangata whenua of New Zealand in the production of its exhibition Aotearoa – Māori Myths and Legends of New Zealand. The exhibition runs from 27 January to 9 June 2024.
Please be aware this exhibition takes place after the exhibition closes in order to coincide with Matariki.
