Street Art

How wonderful is this new mural on Hereford Street celebrating the lives, achievement and legacies of a group of influential wāhine!

The mural features singer, broadcaster and champion for Māori culture and language, Airini Nga Roimata Grennell, award winning writer and activist in feminism, social justice and peace movements Elsie Locke, prominent activist in the fields of Māori welfare and health Erihapeti Rehu-Murchie, conservationist and leader in Ngāi Tahu Wharetutu Te Aroha Stirling, and paraplegic Olympic archer who won Commonwealth Games Gold competing against able bodied competitors Neroli Fairhall.

A big shout out to Ōtautahi artist Kophie Su’a-Hulsbosch and Tāmaki Makaurau artist Janine Williams who designed and produced the mural with guidance from a local working panel.

The mural was made possible by The Hine te Hiringa – Empower Women Utilising FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023 fund, Watch This Space and Ōtautahi Christchurch!
