DAY 3 - AUCKLAND WAR MEMORIAL MUSEUM Tamaki Paenga Hira

lOOKING BACK, MOVING FORWARD

How do we make sense of the future if we don't understand the past? Social and cultural values often compete with economic and political imperatives shaping and re-shaping endeavours through time. The opportunity to reflect on the legacies of formative movements and ideas that have shaped the arts and cultural landscape of the Pacific over the past fifty years is offered here. Sessions under this subtheme will focus on performance arts.

CULTURAL SPACES, SIGHTS & SITES

For peoples and cultures of the great Moana art is a lived experience. Today there are many cultural spaces where Pacific Arts are showcased. These range from Western spaces such as galleries and museums that provide innovative forums, to wider cultural spaces such as Polyfest and Churches where 'unknown' master artists regularly exhibit their creativity and ingenuity. The fast changing pace of technology has also enabled multiple means for documenting and recording as well as providing virtual spaces for instant and global sharing of art.
