Toi Tū Te Whānau Workshop - Videos Online

Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga recently co-hosted 'Toi Tū Te Whānau, Toi Tū Te Kāwai Whakapapa: A workshop on whānau and whakapapa for public policy' in Wellington on 29 May 2018.

Videos of the presentations made on the day are available here on NPM's Media Centre.

These powerful, engaging and eye-opening presentations by researchers, experts and workers from across the sector informed the gathered audience of almost 200 of their lived experiences, and most importantly their research informed recommendations on how the wider system can work more effectively for whānau and Aotearoa New Zealand into the future.

The aims of the workshop were to contribute to a public sector better equipped to comprehend the nature of whānau and whakapapa within Aotearoa New Zealand society and to positively respond to the unique characteristics of whānau in addressing the needs and aspirations of Māori throughout the country.

NPM will be publishing a series of papers in the coming months with more commentary on the critical issues and solutions that were discussed and presented at the workshop, and on the research that continues around the country by these leading practitioners and investigators.
