Pacific peoples of Oceania are orators and poets with the deepest respect for allusion, nuance and metaphor. We harness poetry “to mean more than we say” as the great Futa Helu observed.  We bring our culture of storytelling to COP26 and UNCC with urgency, eloquently speaking to the issues of our region.

“These works have been designed to take tupuna – ancestors – and our Oceanic experiences – across the digital and pandemic divides – to arrive at COP26. We navigate vast distances as we always have… harnessing the technology at our fingertips, resourcefully, to make magic.”
