If you are interested in heritage, art or indigenous urban design, this is the tour for you!

The tour will demonstrate how Ngāi Tūāhuriri / Ngāi Tahu narratives and values have been embedded into projects through art, te reo Māori, landscaping and spatial configuration.  The tour will follow a trail starting at the South Frame project then on to the Justice Precinct and the Earthquake Memorial.

Continuing along the Ōtākaro River to the Bridge of Remembrance we will share our views about two trail projects – Ngā Whāriki Manaaki and the Literary Trail.  We will finish at the terraces for a discussion on mahinga kai/food gathering and the significance of the Ōtākaro to mana whenua as a wāhi taonga/treasured place. Along the way different cultural advisors will take time to talk about their particular expertise.
