Aroha Mai

Aroha mai is a celebration of the traditional Māori medicine system, rongoā, which uses nature as a way of healing. Featuring botanical drawings and photographs of rongoā plants, a portable rongoā garden and a virtual reality rongoā forest, this exhibition aims to entice your senses and fill your wairua (soul). There will also be an interview with Donna Kerridge screening, a prominent rongoā practitioner (first featured on NUKU Women and by Qiane Mata-Sipu).
