Our Wellington Winter 2022 cover.

Winter edition

The winter edition of Our Wellington - Tō Tātou Pōneke covers the period from 16 June to 31 August 2022.

This issue focuses on Matariki, the Māori New Year. The cover, designed by local Māori Artist David Hakaraia, depicts Ngā Whetū O Matariki – the Stars of Matariki, which are the representation of new life and those who have passed on. 

Inside Tō Tātou Pōneke, we share some top spots in the capital for stargazing the Matariki cluster.

There’s the latest on Te Matapihi ki te Ao Nui – Central Library’s redesign, and we introduce our Mataaho Aronui – Māori Strategic Outcomes team. 

We also share a story about the free Zero Waste Education Programme that is inspiring tamariki to become waste minimisers, and tell you what you need to know about the upcoming local elections.

The magazine also has updates on initiatives happening under the Pōneke Promise, our commitment to make our city a safer, more vibrant, welcoming place to be. And, of course, it features details for exciting upcoming events, as well as Council meetings and funding opportunities. 

Copies of Our Wellington - Tō Tātou Pōneke are also available at the following Council sites: Te Awe Library, Arapaki Service Centre, Waitohi Community Hub, Tawa Library, Newtown Library, ASB Sports Centre, Wellington Regional Aquatic Centre, and the Wellington I-SITE on Wakefield Street.
