Te Waioratanga denotes the soundness of body and mind which is achieved through the practice of culturally appropriate methods to support wellbeing.
The project features six beautiful black and white portraits of kapa haka practitioners reflecting on the part that kapa haka plays in enhancing their wellbeing and encourages a conversation within whanau hapu and iwi about the things that support positive wellbeing.
The portraits were showcased at Te Matatini (the national Kapa Haka festival, held in Otatahi in March 2015), and used on billboards, bus stops and posters in the lead up to the festival to promote it. The feedback has been incredibly positive.
