In November 2014, four Pacific canoes sailed from the Cook Islands, Samoa, Fiji and Aotearoa to join us in Sydney highlighting the impact of climate change in the Pacific. Tapastry partnered with the Mua Voyage, Kokonut Vibe and the Australian National Maritime Museum to present the Oceania Festival featuring some of Sydney’s finest cultural practitioners and the Pacific sailors of the Mua voyage.
