Cultural rejuvenation is at the heart of this new exhibition by female artists from Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand.

In Fiji in the 19th century, British colonisers banned veiqia, the traditional practice of female tattooing that marked a girl’s transition to womanhood. The Veiqia Project is a research collective inspired by this tradition, and as a part of its residency at Campbelltown Arts Centre, it’s collaborating with 10 female artists from Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand for an entirely artist-led exhibition that celebrates the rejuvenation of iTaukei (Indigenous Fijian) culture.

Within the exhibition find a vale ni soqo (village meeting house), a space where Pasifika communities gather to learn and share knowledge.
