Victoria University Institute of Early Childhood Studies 2019 – Autumn Seminar
Looking Backward to Move Forward: Me Anga Whakamua,
9am to 3.15pm, Saturday 11 May.
This seminar offers opportunities for practitioners and researchers to consider strategies, strengths and possible priorities for the New Zealand EC sector in the times ahead.
Many western cultures, probably all ‘modern’ cultures, assume that the future lies ahead of us and the past behind us. In the Māori concept ‘Me anga whakamua’ time and space elide – we ‘face’ our past. What if we develop policy and practice with ‘Me anga whakamua’ in mind – being in tune with our days gone, reflective of our pasts, our experiences, where we came from, who we are – would we be able to move with ease into our futures?
Keynote addresses by:
- Helen May, Adjunct Professor, Victoria University of Wellington
- Ben Clark, Northland Childspace
- Lesley Rameka, University of Waikato
- Tiria Shaw and Hoana McMillan, Te Kōhanga Reo ki Rotokawa and University of Waikato
