Our Community Conversations
A Guide to Our Masterclass for Active Citizenship is now available on our website. The four-month Masterclass called How Communities Awaken – Tū Tangata Whenua – has been running in Taranaki over the last decade, and more than 500 people from throughout our province have participated in this unique community development initiative. The Masterclass continues to have a significant impact on civic engagement, on race relations, and on our wider strategies for community and adult education. In 2020, the Masterclass received the ACE Aotearoa Award for the Community Programme of the Year.
We have published this Guide to the thinking, skills and processes behind the Masterclass so that the key ideas behind it can be shared with other communities around New Zealand. This publication has been supported by the Department of Internal Affairs, Community Taranaki and Tū Tama Wahine o Taranaki.
