Ink and needles demonstrating traditional tattooing, hip-hop dance crews straight from the world championships, a GLBTI Fafswag extravaganza; these are just some of the events happening during Urbanesia Festival in November.
The two week festival celebrates contemporary Pasifika arts and culture with more than 70 events spanning theatre, dance, music, visual arts and interactive workshops, most of which are free or low cost. The festival runs from 13-28 November.
Exhibitions by recognised and up and coming Pacific artists feature at galleries and community centres across Auckland, including #StraightOuttaŌtāhuhu, a series of pop up exhibitions from local Ōtāhuhu artists and coLAB, a live art battle staged between a select number of artists.
