Kolokesa Mahina-Tuai & Barbara Afitu

April 26, 8:00am - 9:30am NZST. Hosted at Studio One Toi Tū

part of a series on Inclusive


“We had the same eyes, with the same vision.”

This moment of collaboration between super rad humans, Kolokesa Mahina-Tuai and Barbara Afitu, gave birth to their creative community consultancy Lagi Maama. Honouring the voice of their Tongan and Samoan ancestors, Lagi Maama is the vehicle for Kesa and Barb to lead from the heart, as navigators, connectors, and champions of community. With a background in curatorship, arts advocacy and community engagement, and a passion for critiquing terminology, Kesa and Barb are bringing to CreativeMornings their gentle but provocative style of talanoa to deep dive into our theme, INCLUSIVE.

Things will be a little bit different this month – same time, same place, different format. Kesa and Barb intend to hold space for us to come together as a community, explore the power structures that lie in this month’s theme, and leave us feeling connected with a sense of belonging.

If your jam is learning and creating knowledge together, then come and be a part of the awesome!
