Workshop 2

Time: 12:30pm – 2:30pm
This workshop is an opportunity to learn about the concept of vā (relationships/relational space). We will explore vā through a community perspective from a Sāmoan and Tongan lens and critically reflect on how this could be applied in our work in all situations. This workshop will be presented by Aiono Manu Faaea. Aiono is a practicing ethnomusicologist, educator, and current Senior Pasifika Manager at Manukau Institute of Technology.

Weaving cultural practices in ACE:
The Hui Fono is a unique event centred in Māori and Pasifika knowledges, and teaching and learning practices. Due to the cancelled annual event in February, for the first time we have opened this space to all in the ACE sector, to attend regional workshops featuring a select few of the Ako session presenters. We will be visiting locations nationwide through the year, all are welcome to attend and experience Hui Fono, to build your cultural capability.
