All Ages

Mālo nī. Join renowned artist Moses Viliamu of Tokelauan (Atafu) and Samoan (Faleula) descent discussing digital creativity from a Tokelauan perspective.

Tokelau stories, history and art
How can a small plankton stay significant in a big ocean with much bigger fish, environment and threats? By not being normal — because we don’t have the resources, human power and money. This is where a reliance on creativity goes a very long way!

This is a session of Tokelau stories, history and art using digital technology, interactivity, music and creativity.

About the speaker
Moses Viliamu’s parents moved to Porirua, Wellington, in the early 60s, in a time where pacific communities were new to the nation. Moses’ artwork is about the journey of his people. His use of icons and motifs represents the modern New Zealand pacific heritage to which he belongs.
