Community Conversations - Te Kai a Te Rangatira

Our Open Masterclass and Community Conversations at Tū Tama Wahine o Taranaki have been postponed until further notice because of the COVID-19 situation. We will keep you informed of future developments through our emails and our Facebook page.

A Guide to Our Masterclass for Active Citizenship is now available on the Tū Tama Wahine o Taranaki website. The four-month Masterclass called How Communities Awaken – Tū Tangata Whenua – has been running in Taranaki over the last eight years, and more than 300 people from throughout our province have participated in this unique community development initiative. The Masterclass continues to have a significant impact on civic engagement, on race relations, and on our wider strategies for community and adult education.
We have published this Guide to the thinking, skills and processes behind the Masterclass so that the key ideas behind the Masterclass can be shared with other communities around New Zealand. This publication has been supported by the Department of Internal Affairs, Community Taranaki and Tū Tama Wahine o Taranaki.
