Rewi Spraggon

Rewi Spraggon and his team from the Māori Kitchen had no idea how popular their food would be when they initially lit their hāngi pit in Takutai Square at the beginning of Matariki 2019. But that popularity became as clear as that starlight pre-dawn sky just a few hours later, when a lunchtime queue snaked all the way around the lawn and this year, from Tuesday 30 June to Saturday 4 July, Rewi is back and will be serving delicious manuka-smoked hāngi lunchboxes and hāngi pies. Here, Rewi talks about indigenous people’s deep understanding of sustainability, and the pleasure of holding a community celebration in the heart of the city.

Car parks get populated with people for Park(ing) Day

On Friday 20 September 2019, Britomart's Tyler St was traffic-jammed with locals enjoying themselves in spaces usually occupied by cars. In six plant-strewn 'parklets' along the street, pedestrians sipped coffee on couches, beanbags and seats, or lay back on a cardboard-tube incline and contemplated a cloud of white balloons created by CAAHT Studio.
