Event Details

One of the most popular events of Te Tairāwhiti Arts Festival back again for 2021!⁠ Te Ara I Whiti – the light trail – is set to breathe life into Te Tairāwhiti once more. Te Ara i Whiti explores a journey of legacy, showcased through contemporary Māori art. This enchanting multi-media installation of light sculptures, projections and artworks celebrates our connection to place. Whether the first rays on Hikurangi or the creative genius of Rukupō – the broad expanse of our region is famed for our special relationship to light. Te Ara i Whiti is a celebration of that whakapapa. This year the trail is set to breathe life into Te Tairāwhiti once more, with guest curation by multi-disciplinary artist and curator, educator and practitioner ― Melanie Tangaere Baldwin and created by artists from around the rohe. With the support of award-winning lighting designer Angus Muir, a swathe of spectacular illuminated surprises, large-scale sculptural installations, and projections await those looking for a provocative, playful and whānau-focused evening out.
