Taurima, the gorgeous crochet-like neon artworks floating above Elliott Street, return for the city centre Matariki ki te Manawa programme.

Aucklanders and visitors will see pātaka kai (food storehouse) symbolism suspended above the street in quirky fluoro-neon art created by Lissy Robinson-Cole (Ngāti Kahu, Ngāti Hine), Rudi Robinson-Cole (Waikato, Ngāruahine, Ngāti Pāoa, Te Arawa), Ataahua Papa (Ngāti Korokī Kahukura, Ngāti Mahuta) and Angus Muir Design. Taurima will be up until August and will return for future Matariki Festivals.

These works are designed to be redeployed within the city centre, with support from the city centre targeted rate, creating useful and enduring taonga for the future.
