Spring Soirée took place on 2 September 2023, marking Te Papa's 25th anniversary. It was a night of celebration filled with live music, wine, canapes, and a charity auction all in support of our national museum.

The incomparable Moses Mackay (SOL3 MIO) and pianist Dr Ludwig Treviranus performed a one night only show live inside Te Papa, accompanied on Michael Parekōwhai’s iconic artwork He Kōrero Pūrākau mo Te Awanui o Te Motu: story of a New Zealand river. This work was the centrepiece of Parekowhai’s 2011 Venice Biennale exhibition, and came out of Te Papa’s collection for this special event.

Te Papa Foundation thanks Partridge Jewellers for their ongoing sponsorship.

Appreciation goes out to our wine sponsor, Brennan Wines.

Special thanks also goes to Dancing Sands Gin, Wellington Airport, Grouse Lighting Aotearoa, Homegrown Creative, and Transmission Productions for their support.
