Tuesday 6 November 2012
Press Release: Intercreate Trust

Representatives of local Taranaki groups including iwi will meet with representatives of ten universities and two New Zealand Research institutes in February 2013. The gathering is for SCANZ 2013: 3rd nature.

The primary aim is to bring together people from Aotearoa and around the world to talk about integrating indigenous knowledge into art, science and technology projects. “This approach is very important to resolving a sustainable future. Listening to the indigenous voice could be the key element. More people worldwide are appreciating this way of thinking” says conference organiser Ian Clothier. “We’re calling it a hui-symposium so international people know what it is.”

Day one of the hui-symposium is to be held at historic Owae Marae, day two is at the Western Institute of Technology at Taranaki (WITT) and day three is split between WITT and Pukekura Park, where several creative projects will be viewed.

Dr Te Huirangi Waikerepuru is a keynote speaker as is Nina Czegledy, an international artist-scientist who lives in Canada and Hungary.

Staff of the Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences, and the Institute of Environmental and Scientific Research will present.

The Taranaki organisations are: Owae marae representatives, Western Institute of Technology at Taranaki, Matahiapo, Nga Motu Marine Reserve Society, and Friends of the Waitara River Ngaa Hoa o te Muriwai o Waitara.
