Karanga mai ki ngā hau e whā e ranga nei i a tā tou, Tīhei mauri ora. Tēnei te mihi matakuikui ki a koutou kei ō ku rangatira.
I roto i ngā piki me ngā heke o te wā , nā ia ō ku whakamā nawa atu. This year we are excited to present the festival within the various plattforms of Toi Māori. This is an amazing opportunity to get together as Toi practitioners in Te Waipounamu and showcase our amazing skills and help inspire the next generation of Toi Māori artists.
Ko te reo Māori, te ahurea Māori me ngā Toi Māori te pūtake o WHAO. He hui ahurei e whakanui ana i te mana Māori motuhake. Ko te aranga tēnei o te reo auaha, te reo whakanikoniko hei reo onamata mā te anamata.
Festival Season 18th – 27th August 2023.
