Wānanga give us the opportunity as a collective to get away from the confinements of the city and head to either bush or water, to help us unlock and connect with those creative elements faster. It’s done over a series of consecutive days, where we eat, breathe, and sleep creativity.
From this place we are able to form deeper connections to the self and each other…and THEN we create! These wānanga form the solid platform for our rangatahi to find their voice, their language, and redefine themselves in a safe space before stepping back into their worlds. Wānanga is a very special time of creating, making and connection. It is something we all understand and we respect the gift that it gives us.
