Thank you to everyone who came to First Fridays August!
Reflecting on our incredible relaunch of First Fridays held in our new Tautai Gallery space for the first time amongst our current Moana Legacy exhibition.
“First Fridays is where we share our own stories, sing our own songs and imagine our own futures!”– Courtney Sina Meredith, Tautai Director
First Fridays is a once a month community event hosted by Tautai. After its debut in 2019, First Fridays has attracted thousands of creatives and art-lovers across Aotearoa and Australia. Our August event was the first of 2020, it was a wonderful evening of talanoa and music, featuring a variety of Tamaki Makaurau based artists.

The night was hosted by Teokotai Paitai. Our first guest speaker was Contemporary Practitioner of Hiapo and curator of Moana Legacy, Cora-Allan Wickliffe. Followed by an intergenerational talanoa between multi-disciplinary artist Naawie Tutugoro and her father Luc Tutugoro. Lastly, the night was closed with a performance by up-and-coming hip hop artist Diggy Dupe!
