Jaimie Waititi (Te Whanau a Apanui, Te Ika a Maui, Mana Moana) navigates through current social and environmental politics with a grounding of cultural influences. As a multi media artist based in Auckland, Waititi activates appropriate tools to infiltrate such conversations. Recently a member of the SaVAge K’Lub Waititi uses spoken word, painting, sound and activation as a means to collaborate with others; questioning the audience’s stance on current social debates thus forcing self-reflection.
