We are pleased to advise that the 2024 Firth NZILA Wānanga will be held in Te Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington 16-17 May 2024, culminating with the Resene New Zealand Landscape Architecture Awards on the evening of 17 May.
Join us for sharing, learning, networking and celebrating.
The theme of Wānanga 2024 is Māramatanga.
To Māori, the creation story emphasises the movement of space and time from nothingness and darkness to the world of light – Te Ao Mārama. When Te Ao Mārama was created, the illumination of the world allowed the atua to reach their full potential, creating space for all living things to dwell in harmony. This illumination can be described as Māramatanga.
The Landscape Architecture Wānanga 2024 in Wellington will:
- Be guided by Te Ao Mārama and Māramatanga we'll search for wisdom and understanding through shared knowledge.
- Shine a light on our collective challenges and opportunities as we face exposure to climate, social, and political change.
- Bring focus on the natural world of life and light to bring Landscape Architecture to the forefront of decision making.
Thank you to Firth, our naming rights sponsor.
