This exhibition and Pacific village workshop space over six weeks celebrates and brings together the heritage of the Pacific Islands groups in Porirua, both living and past. It marks the tenth anniversary of outstanding Porirua organisation Strong Pacific Families. As as an exhibition representing all of the islands each week the space is hosted by a different set of island groups, who open with a blessing on the Monday and then hold workshops and gather over the week. This is the first time a Pacific village of this kind has been presented in the Porirua CBD. The last week of the exhibition (coinciding with TEZA) features a nightly Film Festival.
