Community Voices: What’s Your Tūrangawaewae?

Community Voices is back for 2022 with a new look, new guests, new topics and loads of interesting kōrero to be had!

First up: What’s Your Tūrangawaewae?

Tūrangawaewae is one of the most well-known and powerful Māori concepts. Literally tūranga (standing place), waewae (feet), it is often translated as ‘a place to stand’. Tūrangawaewae are places where we feel especially rooted, empowered and connected. They are our foundation, our place in the world, our home.

Our first two Community Voices webinars for 2022 ‘What’s Your Tūrangawaewae’, are an exploration of this concept. We’ll be chatting to people about what they consider to be their tūrangawaewae, within the context of their culture or their place in society. Hosted by our Project co-lead Anjum Rahman, please join us for what promises to be a very interesting kōrero!  

When: Friday 11 March 2022

Time: 12.30 – 1.30pm

Host: Anjum Rahman, IACT Project co-Lead
