The exhibition is open for public viewing before the start of the presentation at 6.00pm
Presented by Karl Johnstone, owner Huami (NZ) Ltd.
For many years Karl has been involved in the perpetuation of Māori arts and culture. This has often led to his careful analysis of the interfaces between culture and commerce; continuity and innovation; and compliance and resistance. He considers the interface of tikanga and technology to be a critical area to further unlock Māori potential and expand opportunities into the future. In this talk, he will illustrate some historic and emerging initiatives and discuss the importance and considerations of new technologies within the Māori environment.
