Marama Dina is an exhibition borne of research and engagement: ongoing research led by The Veiqia Project that aims to reconnect iTaukei (Indigenous Fijian) women with traditional cultural practices; and inter-generational engagement developed through eight workshops over a 12-month period which began in 2018 at Campbelltown Arts Centre (C-A-C).

The Marama Dina exhibition sees iTaukei women take over C-A-C to share the exploration of cultural rejuvenation and celebration with the wider community.

Featuring new commissions by 10 artists from Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand, Marama Dina considers female iTaukei identities in the diaspora, be that away from Fiji or away from village life. The artists each consider how their blood lines and contemporary lives come together, and how they embody the past, present and future. Constructed within the exhibition is a vale ni soqo (village meeting house) offering a space where Pasifika communities can gather, learn and share knowledge.
