From Standing Room Only, 12:45 pm on 23 March 2014

Ema Tavola, a former Manukau City Pacific Arts coordinator, voiced her concerns at a meeting of the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board earlier this year. She says that the Auckland Super City merger means that the local element is getting lost in a focus on regional programming. Justin Gregory asked her what she means.
