The Good Citizen, Britomart’s smart new talk series, gives good ideas a new platform.
We’re launching a talk series! It’s called The Good Citizen, and it’ll feature interesting New Zealanders doing a rich variety of interesting and innovative things. First up – on Thursday 20 September – is Jade Kake. Jade knows Māori design principles can change Aotearoa for the better: not only in our housing, but in our towns and cities too. She’s the founder of the Indigenous Urbanism podcast, for which she’s toured the country checking out the implementation of Māori design principles in a multitude of fascinating projects. She is also designing papakāinga housing near Whangarei that features innovations that every New Zealand housing project can learn from. Join her in conversation with NZ Festival of Architecture curator, Britomart’s Jeremy Hansen, as they discuss what indigenous design offers the country, and how it could become an integral part of every design conversation in Aotearoa.
Thursday 20 September, 6pm-7pm
The Lounge at Generator, Level 1, Stanbeth House, 28 Customs Street East, Britomart
