Morgan prides herself on the ability to include Māori design, with reference to local narratives or values of each individual or organisation. Connecting our communities with stories and tikanga from Te Ao Māori in a way that is inclusive and collaborative.

She finds true joy in visual expression and storytelling, and in seeing the impact her work has on the people who interact with it.


This event is free for Educationalists to attend, but we have some extras to share with you.

  • Kai during the day
  • Reflection journals
  • Prizes and drinks at the end of the day

Delivered in English Medium with Te Ao Māori values woven through the day.

Why is this event free?

DSTA is committed to supporting the development of resources and learning opportunities for kaiako throughout Aotearoa. We accomplish this through the Network of Expertise MoE funding.


We enjoy sharing the free mahi with everyone. However, we occasionally experience people booking in and not attending the hui, which causes us over cater our events.

We have decided, that 48hrs notice must be given if you are unable to attend this hui or a fee of $30.00 is payable to impactED to cover catering costs. Invoices will be delivered to the email in the booking form, and payment in full is the responsibility of the owner of the email address to pay within 2 weeks of delivery.
