Event details

Wayfinding Waikumete investigates the lost name of Waikumete (waters of the kumete bowl) unveiling stories of past, present, and future. A gentle walk that navigates the urban environment of Glen Eden moving towards the Waikumete Stream.

Learn about and follow the subtle signs that locate us while noticing the seasonal markers. This walk is part of a series of walks that track the history of Waikumete. About Walking is a contemporary art series that explores the relationship between walking and art.

It takes place over twelve months and is put together by curators Christina Houghton and Melissa Laing, in partnership with Te Uru Gallery.

Presented by: About Walking and Te Uru Gallery
