Event Details & Registration


Making Spaces is a platform for artists and art professionals to reveal insights into their work and ways of working. It makes space for their voices on what they make, why and how. In this lecture series, leading artists are invited to share their research, illuminating their practices and the contexts in which they operate professionally.

Nova Paul (Te Uriroroi, Te Parawhau, and Te Māhurehure ki Whatitiri, Ngāpuhi) is a visionary artist filmmaker based in Tāmaki Makaurau. Her work encompasses early cinematic film processes, experimental film practices and weaving traditional stories and mātauranga Māori to explore the poetics and politics of everyday self-determination and place, ultimately envisioning tino rangatiratanga - Māori sovereignty.
