Waipapa Marae: the Cultural and Spiritual Heart of the International Indigenous Research Conference 2024

16 Wynyard Street, Auckland Central

Situated within the vibrant campus of the University of Auckland, Waipapa Marae stands as a testament to Māori heritage, resilience, and sovereignty. Serving as the cultural and spiritual focal point for IIRC, Waipapa Marae offers a unique and immersive experience into the Māori world.

Waipapa Marae is not just a venue; it is a living symbol of cultural resilience and a testament to the enduring legacy of Māori tradition. We are honoured to host IIRC 2024 in such a significant and meaningful setting, where every element of the marae speaks to the values of respect, inclusivity, and connection.

Join us at Waipapa Marae, where the past, present, and future converge, and where the spirit of collaboration, cultural appreciation, and community wellbeing will guide our journey together.
