Tautua Tahi Ora

In this project, I collaborated with Toi Ora Arts Trust (a creative space for people experiencing mental health challenges), Mahi Tahi (a kaupapa Māori organisation supporting tangata whaiora) and Vaka Tautua (a Pasifika organisation supporting Pasifika people experiencing mental health challenges) to develop and run a series of creative wellbeing workshops in Panmure, East Auckland. The workshops incorporated waiata, rhythm, visual arts and crafts, and created opportunities for participants and staff to share skills and direct the activities and outcomes. The project ran for three terms and many participants reported increased confidence expressing themselves in different ways as a result.
