What languages do the mountains of Te Waipounamu speak? What tongue would we use to address the fields of Ireland's Iron Islands? How will we tell the places we love what the future holds? Developed in partnership with Cúirt International Festival of Literature, Galway, Tautitotito Whenua explores parallel Irish and Māori histories of grief and revitalisation with regard to language and land.

With Miriama Kamo as your host, meet Irish authors Micheál Ó Conghaile and Máire Uí Dhufaigh, beaming in to read new work and discuss the changing Irish landscapes that formed them. They are joined by Ngāi Tahu authors and composers Hana O’Regan and Charisma Rangipunga with a brand new apakura (lament) exploring climate change's impact on ancestral places. Immerse yourself in the stunning vistas and sounds of te reo and Gaeilge, with discussion and translations in English.

Supported by Culture Ireland and Creative New Zealand
