Tuesday 20 June
Huia Reriti, Debbie Tikau & Peter Townsend (Moderator) - Navigating better Māori design integration within our built environment
10:30am-12pm Seminar Series

15 NZRAB CPD points apply

Debbie Tikao and Huia Reriti will take us through a must-attend kōrero and journey with the Matapopore Charitable Trust – sensitively weaving the cultural design integration process with an array of emotive stakeholders and artists into better rebuild outcomes for Canterbury post earthquakes.

The Matapopore Charitable Trust was established by Ngāi Tūāhuriri to work with Ōtākaro Ltd, Regenerate Christchurch and Christchurch City Council (CCC) to provide cultural advice on Ngāi Tūāhuriri /Ngāi Tahu values, narratives and aspirations, and to weave these into the fabric of the anchor projects and other projects associated with the recovery of greater Christchurch. Ngāi Tūāhuriri is the local Ngāi Tahu sub-tribe (hapū) that holds mana whenua (traditional rights and responsibilities) over the Christchurch CBD.

Continuing at the cutting edge of cultural design integration, Debbie Tikao will also share a Q&A with the audience on recent developments with respect to the built environment industry that aim to assist a new generation of architects, designers and builders to better partner with iwi / hapū to achieve outcomes which reflect our dual histories and world views.

Peter Townsend from Townsend Architects will generously mediate this highly anticipated session.
