Journey of a Million Miles – Panel Discussion

 

The museum hosted the panel event Journey of a Million Miles on August 12, 2017 to explore the themes from the exhibition of the same name by social practice artist Tiffany Singh.

The aim of the event was to share the experience of newcomers to Aotearoa and to give a platform for Auckland Resettled Community Coalition (ARCC) voices to be heard. The panel was facilitated by Lynn Freeman, producer and presenter of Standing Room Only and The Weekend at RadioNZ. While the panel included Singh, general manager of the ARCC, Abann Yor, and journalist, actor and playwright, Victor Rodger. A reading from Beyond Refuge will be performed by New Zealand entertainer, singer and comedian, Jackie Clarke.
