Truth Spoken Truth Heard: This courageous kōrero provides a dose of rongoā for your hinengaro and ngākau on International Race Relations Day.

Join us for an in-depth look at why truth is necessary for a collective understanding of racial equity in Aotearoa, through a protocol for healthy and productive conversations about race and racism.

Race Relations Commissioner Meng Foon joins our call to rangatira and rangatahi, tangata whenua and tangata Tiriti to celebrate, reflect and honour the legacy of social justice leaders and anti-racism movements. We invite you to be inspired by young, emerging thought leaders and creatives who ‘rise up’ to speak a unified reality into existence.

Co-Hosted by television presenter Oriini Kaipara along with Oscar® Nominee Chelsea Winstanley, award-winning internationally recognised author Glenn Singleton, Arts Laureate Moss Te Ururangi Patterson, and wahine rangatira Ripeka Evans, this kōrero session is an intergenerational conscious-raising experience of keynotes and dynamic panel discussions – Truth Spoken, Truth Heard: Order In The House and Mana Wāhine: Honouring our Matriarchs – interwoven with spoken word and delectable vocal performances, making this a day you won’t want to miss.
