Te Hononga: making the connection

Saturday, 11th November 2023 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Te Whare o Rukutia, 20 Princes Street, Dunedin

A series of four workshops which connect us to Te Taiao, our tinana and wairua.
Featuring workshops by Jess Nicholson (Kāi Tahu), Moewai Marsh (Kāi Tahu, Ngāti Kahungunu ki Wairoa), Zoe Hikairo Morehu (Ngāti Maru, Hauraki) and Jessica Latton-Sutherland (Kāi Tahu).
The vision for this project is Poipoia te kākano kia puāwai – Nurture the seed and it will blossom, it is our hope that through this workshop series will encourage and inspire participants to engage meaningfully with the world around us.
Our kaupapa is underpinned by the motto: Whiria te tāngata – weave the people together, and housed within he whare tuturu (an authentic house). The tuapapa/foundation of which is pono me te tika (honest and true), the tuanui/ceiling is manaakitanga (nurturing), our pātu/walls are comprised of aroha (embracing inclusivity) and the front and back of the whare mirror each other, representing koha mai and koha atu (reciprocation).
This kaupapa has been brought to fruition by Tania Sharee Williams from Te Waka Wairua O Aotearoa, and supported with funding from the Dunedin Fringe Trust. The workshops have been curated by Piupiu Maya Turei (facilitator of Tini Whetū Project Space).
