Pataka Lockdown News
Kia ora from everyone at Pātaka, albeit from our various offsite bubbles.
Although Pātaka isn't physically open to the public, we are doing our best to stay connected and keep you all informed during this surreal time by utilising our various online/social media channels (website, Facebook, Instagram and the like), check these out for our latest updates.
Some of our staff not able to work remotely are helping in essential service departments and emergency response teams within Porirua City Council, we are grateful to those who are able to do that. Other Pātaka staff are working from home delivering content for upcoming exhibitions, showcasing artists, profiling industry contemporaries, developing educational resources, taking care of whānau and keeping kids occupied.
In these uncertain times supporting one another is more important than ever, so a big shout out to anyone feeling a bit down or anxious about things right now, kia kaha.
Take care, keep safe, and we’ll do our best to stay in touch and keep you engaged.

Wayne Youle publication
Unfortunately a publication we designed to help celebrate artist Wayne Youle's 20/20: words of wisdom recent exhibition at Pātaka, is also on lockdown, at the printers! We hear it's looking great, but will have to wait until things calm down to be released. Sorry Wayne!
