He inoi mo nga Whare Toi
Nga mihi ki tenei Maunga Takarunga mo ta matou waahi I tona taha.
Ka whakahonoretia a matou tona aroaro me te piringa e whakaratohia ana e ia
He koa to maatau I te wairua hey waahanga o te kaupapa e ora nei tatou.

A prayer for Te Whare Toi
Our thanks to this mountain Takarunga for our place at her side.
We honour her presence and the shelter she provides
We take joy in the spirit that is part of the kaupapa we live by.

Depot has been kaitiaki (caretaker) of Whare Toi since 2003.

Whare Toi is nestled on the side of Maunga Takarunga (Mount Victoria), the largest of the North Shore volcanic cones and one of 14 now under the care of the Tūpuna Maunga Authority (TMA). 

Its name signifies our relationship with the Maunga Authority, honours our attachment to the maunga and connects with Depot’s goal to create sustainable creative futures. We host workshops, art classes, studio space and other community events in this special space.
