ELP lecture series, November lecture, 7–9pm, $40.00pp

Presented by Kathryn Delany and Marianne MacPherson

In this era of ‘connectivity’ we have been reflecting on the importance of connection. The Te Whāriki (2017) Mana Whenua/Belonging strand clearly emphasises the importance of connection 'Children know(ing) they belong and have a sense of connection to others and the environment'. Māori view the 'child’s connection through time to whenua, atua, Māori and tipuna'. Parker J. Palmer (1997) reminds us if we want our children to be able to weave their own web of connections between the world, the people around them and themselves then we need to spend time modeling this with them. Using the Whāriki and weaving as a metaphor for connection we will be exploring ways in which we can re-connect.
