Marama Dina sees iTaukei (Indigenous Fijian) women take over Campbelltown Arts Centre to share the exploration of cultural rejuvenation and celebration with the wider community, presented in conjunction with the Yirran Miigaydhu exhibition.

Featuring new commissions by 10 artists from Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand, the exhibition considers female iTaukei identities in the diaspora, be that away from Fiji or away from village life.

Marama Dina is an exhibition borne of research and engagement: ongoing research led by The Veiqia Project that aims to reconnect iTaukei women with traditional cultural practices. Founded in 2015, The Veiqia Project is a creative research collective of female artists and researchers inspired by veiqia, the traditional practice of Fijian female tattooing (forcibly halted by British colonisers in the 19th century). The collective uses workshops and exhibitions to invite Fijian (and other Pasifika) women on a journey of artistic and cultural discovery.
