Kia hora te marino, kia whakapapa pounamu te moana, kia tere te kārohirohi i mua i tō huarahi.
May peace be widespread, may the sea glisten like greenstone, and may the shimmer of light guide you on your way.
Like the proverbial saying, Mana Moana guides the way through the glistening of light and and water – bringing to life the power and prestige of the ocean through presenting Māori and Pacifika stories in a visually compelling and impactful way on the Wellington waterfront.
The judges were impressed with both the breadth of collaboration and compelling presentation, bringing our cultural landscape to life in our urban landscape.
