2 GIRLS 1 CONFERENCE is the name of a hearty campaign to have Pacific Art practices from South Auckland heard and discussed at the Pacific Arts Association (PAA) 11th International Symposium in Vancouver, Canada from 6-9 August.


We are Leilani Kake and Ema Tavola, two passionate Pacific art practitioners and advocates from South Auckland. We feel honoured and excited to have had papers accepted for this prestigious gathering of influential curators and academics. Leilani intends to discuss her video installation practice in the context her of recent MA research into intercultural identities and Ema will contribute to a panel entitled, "Curating Pacific Spaces: The New School of Contemporary Pacific Art from New Zealand".


Having collaborated on international travel, lecture tours, exhibitions and events since 2004, we have built our *award-winning* art practices on strong networking, bold advocacy, a genuine sense of service to our communities and lots of love, sweat and tears! In the past we have attracted support from a wide range of organisations for our collaborative endeavours, but this year we have both returned to full-time tertiary study and arts-related funding for various reasons has been out of reach.

We are fundraising with all our energies to get to Canada and proudly represent our communities; funds raised will support airfares and accommodation.

Whilst we are two individuals travelling to one conference, we represent a community of hard-working artists and the massive interconnected network of Pacific people who sustain and inform them. Our participation is about representing our collectives, making South Auckland visible and engaging new audiences with our vibrant and unique arts and culture.
