PERFORMANCE ART WEEK AOTEAROA.
PAWA is a new platform for performance art in New Zealand running from the 14-18th of November in Wellington. PAWA brings together a wide variety of performance artists from around New Zealand and the world with the intent to stimulate critical discourse, broaden audiences, strengthen artistic ties.
It not only serves as a space to host work but also as a space of giving and sharing, a space to create dialogue in the vein of reciprocation and celebration. It aims to showcase work that is challenging, engaging, and at times, quite confronting.
SAFER SPACE POLICY
“A safer space is a supportive, non-threatening environment that encourages open-mindedness, respect, a willingness to learn from others, as well as physical and mental safety. It is a space that is critical of the power structures that affect our everyday lives. Everyone who enters a safer space has a responsibility to uphold the values of the space.” – 2015 Golden West Music Festival.
