Creative Conversations
August 28th

Connect and kōrero with us and other creatives.
Hey Tairua and Pāuanui!
We are coming to kōrero with you to learn about your creative mahi and introduce you to our initiatives that can help amplify your creative practice. Plus, it's an excellent opportunity to socialise, network, and connect with others.
This is not a boring sit-down hui with pen and paper but an invitation to a great night out, good kai, and forging new connections.

Somatic Dance Journey
August 4th

Somatic Dance is a guided free form embodied movement journey, held in a non-judgemental space where all of you is welcome.
No prior dance experience is necessary and all bodies are welcome.
Come and move your body to the rhythm of your soul, ready to deepen your connection with yourself and others.
The guidelines are simple: No booze (or intoxicants), shoes or talking in the dance.
Slip deep into the layers of your body, supported by a carefully chosen epic music and a beautiful group of humans.
Fully embody your truest expression, release debris and allow movement to show you your fullness.
Wear clothes you are comfortable moving in (layers are great), bring a drink bottle and a drop or two of curiosity!
See you on the dance floor for the most epic way to start your day and leave the dirt behind.
