Special Events for 2014
Voices of Sacred Earth expands its unique character this year with even more attractions. More venues, more presenters, more activities.
Sacred Earth Water Journey
Caroline Robinson and Michael O’Donnell have prepared an exclusive sequence of events as part of the festival programme. The Sacred Earth Water Journey links people into the creative processes and water relationships that shaped Caroline’s LUNA (stone tower) sculpture project for the Oteha Valley.
The creative process for LUNA relates directly to the living water systems of the Kaipatiki Stream and wider ecologies of the valley, and out to the Waitemata… LUNA carries a story of our relationships within these landscapes.
This event, hosted by Caroline, is free to the public and involves visiting the LUNA site. The Water Journey continues with Michael and other wisdom keepers on the Stream CleanUp, a presentation that weaves in the kaupapa and energy of LUNA and her connections to Kaipatiki, into the korero for Kawai Purapura.VIEW FULL WATER JOURNEY DETAILS
