Kaupapa oranga hapori

Projects for community wellbeing and social justice

As a kaupapa Māori organisation working at the interface of toi and hauora, we are uniquely positioned to offer creative, healing experiences for communities that most need it.

On this page, you'll find information about:

The Swing

This Theatre Marae project seeks to unravel the shame and hurt that clouds and distorts the subjects of ngau whiore (sexual abuse) and whakamomori (suicide).

The initial development of The Swing attracted positive feedback about the value and necessity of such a project. 

Te Rākau has worked with the original participants and additional communities to present The Swing as a play, as a community based rangahau project, and as a professional development experience.

Other projects

If you and your community would like to work with us to design a community wellbeing and social justice project, please let us know.

In the past we've worked on community projects that align with our values, such as recovering from gambling harm and meth addiction.
