Touch Compass

A journey of identity, desire, family, and what it means to be disabled and Pasifika.

A collective creative ensemble of women, non-binary, disabled, non-disabled, Pasifika and Māori identities brings this quest for identity and belonging to life, artfully sharing their own experiences with and through Lusi’s.
