Te Auaha, NZ Institute of Creativity on Dixon St, is hosting the second iteration exhibition ‘Have Something To Say’, a collective exhibition of artworks from five Wellington artists, which runs until Saturday, August 15.
Mālō le soifua Greta Point Aīga
One of the great things we love about the beautiful city of Wellington is the melting pot of cultures in our community.
We are so lucky to be able to learn and experience different languages, foods, ideas, dances, and music. We are fortunate that our Greta Point families are happy to share these experiences with us too!
Over the coming weeks we are celebrating our Samoan Aīga (family) and Tamaiti (children) in the center. Nardia has been singing Samoan’s songs to the tamaiti and Jo has been creating magic in the kitchen with Samoan Masi (biscuits).
The mix is quite wet, and we reduced the sugar and increased the cooking time – they have a texture similar to shortbread but a taste similar to Krispy biscuits – and were a BIG hit with the tamaiti and faiaoga (teachers). (I might have sampled a few just to make sure they were up to scratch!). Attached is the recipe for you to try at home.
