Our exhibition exploring representations of the 1981 Springbok rugby tour is now live! TOHE | PROTEST is in Te Puna Gallery in the National Library in Wellington, and also has a special online component. On our website you can learn about the significant preservation work undertaken on PATU!, the definitive anti-Tour documentary, in time for the 40th anniversary of filming. We also spoke with some of the those who lived through the Tour – either on the protest lines or watching the games. Explore the exhibition here.
On 28 August we’ll also be hosting a very special event at the National Library. A day of dialogue and reflection with a rare screening of the new version of PATU!, followed by a panel discussion including some of those closely involved in the film and the protest movement. Event details here.
TOHE runs till 11 December. Free entry.

Kei tā mātou whārangi ipurangi ngā akoranga mō ngā mahi rokiroki, mahi whakamatihiko mō PATU!, te pakipūmeka whakahē i te Tāpoinga, kua huri te 40 tau i te hopunga. I kōrero mātou ki ētehi i ora i taua Tāpoinga – rātou i te mura o te ahi, i mātakitaki rānei i ngā kēmu.
