‘Tutuvatu’ is from a dialect in the Guadalcanal Province of Solomon Islands that refers to the beating of two stones (instead of drums) to bring people together for an important conversation. People who gather share some relationship with each other; whether it be of the same family, faith, tribes or for people with a common vision for common good.

Pasifika Women’s Alliance in partnership with Griffith University, Oceanic Pacific Health Association, Pasifika Young Peoples Wellbeing Network and True Relationships & Reproductive Health presents ‘Tutuvatu

This FREE event, Tutuvatu brought together Pasifika women – mothers, daughters, sisters, aunties & grandmothers to support each other to have conversations on topics such as sexual health and healthy relationships.

It also provided an opportunity to hear from Pasifika health professionals and learn more about career options in health at Griffith University.

This event was for women 15 years and older.
