We're in favour of any event that highlights the awesome work done by women in our industry, so this August 23 event (yep, that's this Wednesday!) looks like one to be at.

Held at Ngā Taonga in Wellington, the evening will look beyond limiting stereotypes, celebrate the mana of Māori women and acknowledge the many contributions Māori women have made in Aotearoa.

The Wāhine Toi Whakaata - Panel Discussion is in association with Wāhine: Beyond the 'dusky maiden' exhibition (co-curated by Catherine Bisley). You can look forward to silent material from Ngā Taonga's film collections (with live taonga puoro accompaniment), as well as a panel discussion on representation of Māori women on screen led by Dr Arini Loader. Panelists include Nancy Brunning and Mīria George.
