Explore the journeys made by migrants to New Zealand in a compelling exhibition inspired by real-life experiences. Created by social practice artist, Tiffany Singh, the installation personalises and unpacks the conversations around the process of resettling in Aotearoa.

Relevant and engaging, “The Journey of a Million Miles - Following Steps” will transform the Edmiston Gallery at the New Zealand Maritime Museum into a stunning and thought-provoking environment.

Music, audio and digital technology are used to convey and share a variety of migration experiences that reflect the joy, heartache and confusion of moving to a new land. Visitors will also be able to share their immigration stories, which will be integrated into the exhibition.

“I hope that by engaging with the artwork and the stories, people will take away a new understanding of what it’s like to resettle here,” says Singh. “Through listening to the different stories there is the potential to build tolerance, compassion and an awareness that can filter down to the younger generations so that we can build a more harmonious society.”

The exhibition is the second stage of a project conceived for this year’s headland Sculpture on the Gulf: “A Journey of a Million Miles Begins with One Step - The Stories of Beyond Refuge”. Staged on Waiheke Island, the first installation was created in partnership with Auckland Resettled Community Coalition and based on the publication Beyond Refuge - Stories of Resettlement in Auckland. At the NZ Maritime Museum the project expands its focus to consider all immigration stories.

Through listening to the stories told in the exhibition, project partners Tiffany Singh and ARCC hope the exhibition will encourage visitors to reflect and engage with the issues around resettlement and immigration. In order for someone to feel at home, there is a need to be connected to others and to be a contributing member of society. ARCC General Manager, Abann Yor, believes a level of humanity is necessary in order to facilitate effective resettlement outcomes and integration into society.

There will be a range of public programmes that accompany the exhibition - everything from public talks, holiday programme workshops, live performances and family days. Check back to our website during the exhibition run for details.

Entry to the exhibition is free with your Maritime Museum entry ticket.
