Moewai Marsh, Artsenta

SUSTAINING CREATIVE ENERGY: As art workers, we give our ideas and skills to others to facilitate their art, creativity and wellbeing. This session reflects on the impact of this work: on ourselves and our ability to sustain creative energy to share with others.

Andrew Mitchell, Vincents Art Workshop

STAYING CONNECTED DURING COVID: During THE COVID-19 lockdowns, art tutors at creative spaces were presented with the problem of how to connect with their artists. Andrew share the story of how this happened at Vincents Art Workshop, and how to make a successful art tutorial video.

Nicola Pauling, Voice Arts

ACTIVIATING THE IMAGINATION: Learn how to facilitate a selection of exercises that can be used in your creative space for multiple purposes: to build deeper connections; for brain health and cognitive stimulation; to bring joy and laughter; and to activate imagination.

Charlotte Nightingale and Michael Eaglesome, Glass Ceiling Arts Collective

TOOL FOR ENGAGEMENT: Using Glass Ceiling Arts Collective’s multi-sensory, digital "theatre-in-the-home" work  called The Badger Story, you can learn how multi-sensory devices can be used as a tool for engagement for people with PMLD (profound and multiple learning disabilities).

Thomas Hinz and Kahurangi Marino Aroha Bronsson-George, Circability 

MĀORITANGA AND CIRCUS ARTS: This session looks back at the "why" "what" and "how" Māoritanga and circus arts are coming together at Circability. Thomas and Kahurangi share their challenges and highlights, and what’s waiting next on their journey.

Moana Harrison, Artists in the Making

UNIVERSAL PATTERNS OF TUKUTUKU: Moana Harrison talks about the symbolism and colours of tukutuku (woven panels that adorn the wharenui/meeting house); and the 12 universal patterns, their meaning within te ao Māori, and how they convey a complex language of visual symbols.             

Bronwyn Bent, Hobson Street Theatre Company

UPLIFTING EACH OTHER: Bronwyn explores the Hobson Street Theatre Company’s approach to creating performance workshops, where a relationship-based approach of trust and uplifting each other underpin everything.
