This exhibition and workshop space is an exciting mix of seven young Māori female artists connected to Porirua, bringing the presence of a new creative indigenous energy to its CBD. Included are female painters, moko artists, a writer, a jewellery designer and a film maker, all accomplished young visionaries in their fields with reputations beyond Porirua.
The idea was born from seeing a call for proposals put out by Letting Space's service Urban Dream Brokerage which saw the artists gather in wananga over several months.
Toi Wahine features an exciting programme of events, including live ta moko sessions and workshops, with each artist hosting the space on different days giving it diverse energy and flavours.
