The Normandie Research Project part three: Walk the talk | Wellington + Sydney 2015


WellingtonAirportMission: Walk from Wellington airport to Chop Suey Hui presentation venue and create an artist talk along the way.


In the end I decided not to present these photo’s for my talk and opted show images from my walk in France. On the way I picked up some Polaroid film and got the crowd to participate by making Polaroid drawings during the talk to take home.

Many thanks to Nina Tonga and Bridget Rewiti for inviting me to speak at the January Chop Suey Hui (2015).
Big shout to KAVA CLUB for organising inspiring events that bring together Maori and Pacific creatives to collaborate, connect, support & network, positively. Also, thanks to Tautai Pacific Arts Trust for supporting this adventure.orangeline
