Bridging Cultures Hamilton

Our next Bridging Cultures hui is taking place on Tuesday, September 5th in Ōtautahi Christchurch.

This is a free event that connects Ethnic and Pasifika communities with tangata whenua and local iwi history, aiming to strengthen community relationships and encourage future collaboration.

Bridging Cultures emerged from reoccurring feedback from these communities, describing their lack of connection with each other. We believe that community solidarity is a critical part of anti-racism work, as building connections and sharing stories promotes inclusion and belonging for the many different ethnicities that call Aotearoa home.

Our first three hui were enriching events that exhibited the power of connection – so we hope that you can join us for this next one. Kai will be provided, meaning you only need to bring yourself, your story, and an open mind!

If you are interested in attending this hui then please reach out to for a link to the registration or any further information. Please feel free to share this pānui with those that you think would find the day valuable.

Thank you to all our funders that make these important conversations and connections possible: The Tindall Foundation, TODD Foundation, Trust Waikato, Foundation North, Wellington Community Trust, and the Ministry for Social Development.
