    The Journey of a Million Miles – Following Steps



    Explore the journeys made by migrants to New Zealand in a compelling exhibition inspired by real-life experiences. Created by social practice artist, Tiffany Singh, the installation personalises and unpacks the conversations around the process of resettling in Aotearoa.

    Relevant and engaging, “The Journey of a Million Miles – Following Steps” will transform the Edmiston Gallery at the New Zealand Maritime Museum into a stunning and thought-provoking environment. Music, audio and digital technology are used to convey and share a variety of migration experiences that reflect the joy, heartache and confusion of moving to a new land. Visitors will also be able to share their immigration stories, which will be integrated into the exhibition.

     

     

    “I hope that by engaging with the artwork and the stories, people will take away a new understanding of what it’s like to resettle here,” says Singh. “Through listening to the different stories there is the potential to build tolerance, compassion and an awareness that can filter down to the younger generations so that we can build a more harmonious society.”

     

     

    There will be a range of public programmes that accompany the exhibition – everything from public talks, holiday programme workshops, live performances and family days. Check back to our website during the exhibition run for details.

     

    Entry to the exhibition is free with your Maritime Museum entry ticket. Find out more at www.maritimemuseum.co.nz
