Saturday 9 March
10am – 12pm
Te Whare Hēra Gallery
A workshop facilitated by Latham Zearfoss

How can Pākehā/white artists advocate for racial justice?

A collaboration between Te Whare Hēra and Toi Pōneke Arts Centre, this workshop follows the talk Whiteness: a blinding view. The workshop is intended to provide an exploratory space for Pākehā/white artists to engage with racial justice effectively and ethically. Come with hard questions and we will workshop together some real-world solutions. While this event is geared towards encouraging and empowering Pākehā/white artists to become greater advocates for racial justice, everyone is welcome to join and contribute.

Free - Register with Essi Airisniemi: by Monday 4 March.
Due to a very limited amount of spaces available, we request that attendees RSVP only if they are able to commit to the workshop schedule. 

Latham Zearfoss lives and works in Chicago, and holds a MFA from the University of Illinois. They are a multi-disciplinary artist whose practice forms around time-based projects. They work largely in video and sound, object installations and also produce music and publications. Concerned with inherited queer histories and the everyday realities of social and political life on the margins, Zearfoss’s intersectional practice focuses on formative experiences of “selfhood and otherness”.
