He Whare, He Taiao … Kia Matapopore …!
15 October 2019 - The Great Hall
As we move deeper towards an uncertain future, city makers and thinkers are reimagining how we live and how the environments we create can be better integrated with natural ecological processes.
Matapopore Charitable Trust, in collaboration with Boffa Miskell’s Craig Pauling, present a discussion on why integrating Māori narratives and values into the shaping of our urban environments could help guide us towards a more respectful and meaningful way of living cohesively with our natural environment.
The rebuild of Christchurch is a huge opportunity to build back better. One of the biggest changes is the gains that local iwi are making politically and culturally through the recovery process. Consideration of what a contemporary expression of Māori design and architecture really looks like in the rebuild will enable a conversation around what our future heritage might be like: the weaving of people, values and stories(from Ngai Tahu) with the weaving of the strands – buildings, the environment and the ecology.
Dates: Tuesday 15 October 2019
Times: 5.30 – 6.30pm
Venue: The Great Hall, The Arts Centre Te Matatiki Toi Ora, 2 Worcester Boulevard, Christchurch
