Pos­i­tive poster wins

The Northland Age - - Local News -

Ahipara man Richard Mur­ray, whose le­gacy in Kaitaia in­cludes the stun­ning atrium floor at Te Ahu, has a won a poster com­pe­ti­tion or­gan­ised

E Tu¯ Wha¯nau, a Ma¯ori ini­tia­tive aimed at cre­at­ing pos­i­tive change and end­ing vi­o­lence.

Mr Mur­ray (Te Rarawa) was one of 250 con­tenders, who were asked to cre­ate a poster in any medium de­pict­ing E Tu¯ Wha¯nau’s val­ues: aroha (giv­ing with­out ex­pec­ta­tion of re­turn), mana manaaki (build­ing the mana of oth­ers through nur­tur­ing), and whaka­papa (know­ing who you are and where you be­long).

Adult and ta­mariki win­ners were cho­sen for each value, while there was also a prize for the most votes, taken by Nga­toia Pin­cott (Gis­borne). Mr Mur­ray’s en­try in­ter­preted whaka­papa.

The posters were judged with the help of Kura Te Waru-Rewiri, As­so­ciate Pro­fes­sor at Massey Univer­sity’s School of Art, and com­mu­nity artists Ja­nine Wil­liams and Charles Wil­liams.

The win­ning en­tries will be used to cre­ate posters and other re­sources to help share the E Tu¯ Wha¯nau kau­papa. The com­pe­ti­tion was run in part­ner­ship with Ma¯ori Ra­dio and the Ma¯ori Media Net­work.
