The Masterclass for Active Citizenship – Tū Tangata Whenua –
was designed to bring a diverse group of local people together
to awaken their involvement in civic life, or in hapū and iwi affairs,
and to strengthen their skills and abilities
to make things better in our communities.
This four-month Masterclass learning journey
has been run in partnership with
Tū Tama Wahine o Taranaki.

The Masterclass Guide
A Guide to Our Masterclass for Active Citizenship is available on the Tū Tama Wahine o Taranaki website. This Guide has been published so that the thinking, skills and processes behind the Masterclass can be shared with other communities around New Zealand and beyond.
In 2020, the Masterclass received the ACE Aotearoa Award for the Community Programme of the Year.
This Guide has been supported by the New Zealand Department of Internal Affairs, Community Taranaki and Tū Tama Wahine o Taranaki.
