Whangarei Fritter Festival

Sorry, this event has been and gone.

Inhabiting the space where concepts of art, science and cultural knowledge intersect, The Kauri Project is a curatorial endeavour dedicated to examining the relationship between people and landscape, focusing on our unique and threatened indigenous kauri forest ecology.

Working in collaboration with artists, scientists, iwi and community we seek to expand awareness of the crucial place of kauri in our biological and cultural landscape, and the threat posed to this unique species by kauri dieback disease.

Since the micro-organism Phytopthera agathadicida was formally identified as the cause of kauri dieback in 2008, scientists have worked to understand the disease and establish how best to protect kauri from this deadly threat. Kauri Ora Mauri Ora brings together work by artists from across Northland and beyond to explore the complexity of our relationship with this tree and its forest.

Kauri ki uta, Kauri ki tai - May Kauri once again flourish from hilltop to the sea.
