I’m so, so proud to be holding the 2010 Manukau Pacific Arts Summit for the first time. It has been a long time coming, but a stellar programme has been developed targetting different facets of the Pacific arts community in Manukau and further throughout the Auckland region.
A full events summary is now available on the Manukau City Council website and beautiful poster brochures will be available at Arts Centre, Libraries, Citizen Advice Bureaus (CABs) around Manukau from next week.
Project Manager, Brett Stirling is doing an excellent job and I can’t wait til May!!
The ASB Polyfest is an amazing event, so positive and empowering.
