Pacific Frequencies: Mahu | Audio Exhibition

Annaliese Lines from Howick Historical Village

Visit Howick Historical Village to tune into Pacific Frequencies: Mahu, a sonic exhibition highlighting Indigenous and Pacific stories of home and healing, created and developed by the all wāhine production collective BRŌWNALFĀ.

Exploring channels of urban Polynesian and Māori experiences in Tāmaki Makaurau, this immersive storytelling installation is situated in Brindle Cottage, a mid-19th century settler’s home now used for educational activities. Pacific Frequencies: Mahu features a purpose built Polynesian-themed living room from a slightly earlier era. Settle yourself into this domestic space, throw on some headphones, and flick through a world of sound and stories on an old-school radio.

Poets, musicians, and storytellers from East and South Auckland collaborated with BRŌWNALFĀ to design this soundscape-driven audio experience. Opening the discussion around story sovereignty, the exhibit delves into the Pacific diaspora, tūrangawaewae, and the ever-changing understanding of Tāmaki Makaurau's history.

This project is funded by Arts Out East, supported by Te Tuhi, Howick Local Board, and Howick Historical Village.

July 9 – August 4 (Tuesday – Sunday 10:00am - 3:00pm)

75 Bells Road, Pakuranga, Auckland, New Zealand. In Lloyd Elsmore Park. Free with admission to Howick Historical Village. Admission price: Adults $14, senior/student $12, Child $6.

Could the jury service process be improved?

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Every year, thousands of New Zealanders are called up to serve as jurors in the High and District Courts, and it's an important way to contribute to your country.

But for some, jury service can be a huge disruption and a financial burden. Do you think changes could be made to our jury service system to address these challenges?
