We were incredibly honoured to have hosted, along with The Michael King Writers Centre & Penguin Random House, this phenomenal conversation with Michael Krzanich, Witi Ihimaera, Haare Williams and guests.
This conversation was in conjunction with Michael Krzanich’s exhibition Someone’s Mana. A photo book of the same name was also published, with an introduction by Witi Ihimaera and Haare Williams, and poetry by Haare Williams. The Someone’s Mana publication is available to purchase from the Depot Artspace for $85.
Here is a short video of Haare Williams describing mana.
