The Tjibaou Cultural Centre, named in tribute to distinguished independentist leader Jean-Marie Tjibaou, is a showcase for Kanak art and culture. An iconic masterpiece designed by world-renowned architect Renzo Piano, the Centre opened in 1998. It houses permanent and temporary exhibitions and features a rich program of events and attractions. The Centre is hosting an exciting evening event, open to all, as a curtain-raiser for its 2017 season. The evening’s twin highlights are an exhibition of photographs by Théo Rouby entitled “The Builders of Futuna”, exploring the close bond between Futunans and their churches, and a show featuring radical slam poetry and music group Section Autochtone du Pacifique. Free admission, places are limited.
