    The Taumata Kōrero | Te Ataakura Pewhairangi | Māori and Kura Kaupapa Māori: The Kura Kids

    In Māori language circles, Te Ataakura Pewhairangi (Ngāti Porou) is quickly becoming a household name. She’s but one of the growing population of new-age, well-equipped, young, vibrant Māori taking the world on after graduating from the kura kaupapa Māori system. At 17 she was presenting kids TV shows in te reo and she is now a lecturer at Massey University. It begs the question though, what does the future hold for total immersion Māori education? How sustainable is the model? This is Te Ataakura’s story. This is The Taumata Kōrero. Welcome to The Taumata Kōrero – the quintessential space to disseminate a little bit of esoteric knowledge – with a twist. Exclusively dedicated to conversation that will inform, reform, question, challenge, debate, investigate, analyse, deconstruct and then reconstruct how we see ourselves as Māori – this is the wānanga at it’s finest. Join University of Auckland Māori language lecturer and former award-winning Māori journalist, Raniera Harrison (Te Aupōuri, Ngāti Porou) as he critically analyses some of the most pertinent topics in the Māori world today. Long Live The Wānanga.

    Disruptors 3: The problem with having a seat at the table

    Episode three of Disruptors pairs up the incoming and outgoing producers-in-residence at Basement Theatre – Elyssia Wilson-Heti and Alice Kirker. If, like us, you’re still a little confused about what producers actually do, tune in.Elyssia and Alice share a passion for creating work that celebrates body positive, something they say inherently puts them in a disruptive space. It’s a position they are more than comfortable with as they consciously make work outside traditional bounds. “This idea of needing a seat at the table I’ve always found problematic,” says Elyssia. “If you’re still the only one person who isn’t usually on that table, quite frankly fuck your table. I’ll make my own table.” Disruptors is a podcast series where creatives in Aotearoa talk about how they disrupt with their art, produced by Basement Theatre.

    EPISODE 1: In the first ever episode of Disruptors, Comedy trio Frickin Dangerous Bro (Jamanie Ross, James Roque and Pax Assadi) talk about New Zealand’s comedy scene. How do you navigate an inherently white space as a person of colour? How do you know if you should keep pursuing your art or if it’s time to quit? What does Pax mean when he says “comedy is like adding the honey to the medicine” (a self-confessed, very FOB thing to say)? Disruptors is a podcast series where creatives in Aotearoa talk about how they disrupt with their art.
