As Matariki is the time to reflect it is integral to acknowledge those that have soil on their hands as we head into the new year, the workers, the backbones, the action people. Mahia te mahi is this reflection.
This collective of artists embodies this kaupapa, we put in the mahi day in and day out, in our practice, communities and work. This show is the manifestation of our dedication to our toi, our people, and ourselves.
