Event description

Description

Community Research webinars are live events which link up community sector professionals from multiple locations to share evidence of what’s working. Places are free of charge.


In this webinar:

This 90-minute webinar will share the voices and the passion of the composers, choreographers, tutors and performers who bring kapa haka to life every day at home, on the marae, in schools and communities, and on national and international stages.

Leonie Pihama, Dr Jillian Tipene and Herearoha Skipper describe the rich contribution that kapa haka makes to social cohesion, to people's health, to education and to wealth in Aotearoa/New Zealand. We’ll hear the evidence that supports this.

We’ll consider the value of evidence. We’ll discuss the benefits of investing in research, and of documenting and evidencing our own practices, to make it more likely that we and others understand our distinct value. We’ll hear about current efforts to build a research agenda for kapa haka in Aotearoa/New Zealand.

UPDATE:

We're truly honoured to confirm that we will be joined by two venerable guests for this webinar. Carl Ross, Executive Director of Te Matatini, who will give the karakia and introduce the research. Ripeka Evans, Pou Ārahi Whakahaere Strategic Māori Adviser at Ministry of Culture, who will join us for the whole event and kōrero with our presenters.

Participants will:

  • Learn about the significant contribution that kapa haka makes to Aotearoa/New Zealand’s wellbeing and identity;

  • Learn how activities such as kapa haka enhance wellbeing for whānau and communities;

  • Gain an insight into Kaupapa Māori research methodologies;

  • Learn how the value of culture, knowledge and art may be articulated, and how ‘value’ itself may be defined and measured.


Who is this webinar for?

This webinar is particularly (though not exclusively) intended for people who research or work with communities to increase the wellbeing of Māori and, in particular, to promote positive, strength-based environments for rangatahi.

Community Research webinars are designed for busy professionals, working to improve the circumstances of the Tangata Whenua, Community and Voluntary Sector. They help time-poor, cash-strapped organisations to produce evidence of their real value.
