A Guide to Our Masterclass for Active Citizenship (2020)


A Guide to Our Masterclass for Active Citizenship is now available on the Tū Tama Wahine o Taranaki website.

The four-month Masterclass called How Communities Awaken – Tū Tangata Whenua – has been running in Taranaki over the last eight years, and more than 300 people from throughout our province have participated in this unique community development initiative. The learning and experiences from the Masterclass continue to have a significant impact on civic engagement, on race relations, and on our wider strategies for community and adult education. 

We have published this Guide to the thinking, skills and processes behind the Masterclass so that the key ideas behind the Masterclass can be shared with other communities and citizen education initiatives around New Zealand.

This publication has been supported by the Department of Internal Affairs, Community Taranaki and Tū Tama Wahine o Taranaki.
