EVENT: Tā ina o le tatau – The Talanoa

Moana Waiwai Moana Pāti | Public Programmes

Join us for a talanoa with Tyla Vaeau about the art of tatau.

Bringing this intimate practice into a public, gallery setting, Tyla will share insights into an art form that is an integral part of social and cultural identity throughout the Pacific.

Tyla is an acclaimed tatau practitioner, artist, and researcher, known for her unique ability to combine the contemporary with the traditional in her art. She emphases the importance of talanoa when it comes to her practice – her tattoos are more than just pictures, they symbolise one’s background and their identity.


When: Saturday 14 August, 3:00pm
Where: Tatuai Gallery, 300 Karangahape Road, Auckland CBD
FREE EVENT – All welcome!
