Convened by Eugene Hansen, our evening panel discussion will bring together creative practitioners, academics and technologists and connect creative AI practices into the ongoing discussions around machine learning, AI, te Tiriti o Waitangi, and data sovereignty with a focus on AI’s implications for contemporary Māori arts.

Eugene Hansen (Maniapoto) is a senior lecturer at Massey University’s Whiti o Rehua School of Art, Wellington. Focusing on co-authoring and working collaboratively, he has a long-term multimedia art practice exhibiting nationally and internationally.

He lives in Wellington
