Tēnā koutou e nga rangatira o Kahukura Ariki

MEA have partnered with Kanorau – Te Wānanga o Aotearoa to deliver a series of marae based and community digital programmes over the next month. For more information check out our website www.kanorau.nz

We would like to offer the opportunity for Kahukura Ariki to host these on your marae.

The programme is free, the workshop is only three hours and for each person who registers your marae will receive $50.00 per attendee.  So if you can get 16 people that will be $800.00 for your marae.  A win win because you get free digital skills, our team brings the equipment and facilitators and workbooks and your marae will finally be able to work out how to maximise their digital screens and equipment (if you have it).

Our lead facilitator is Hemi Ruka (Ngāti Pakau/Ngāpuhi) who spent the last 2 years delivering digital training as part of the NGEN Room and also delivered the Marae Digital Capability programme to over 30 marae nationwide.

He will be joined by local facilitators who will help support and awhi the learning.
