Transforming Health Literacy

Come on a journey with me, watch my art transform darkness into form.

Ramari Heremia (Waiariki) 1879-1965

Turn your world upside down and unpack what it means to decolonise our ways of being.

Lets start with reclaiming what is ours – health literacy – a space for Māori to be ourselves; a space that is negotiated, adaptive and shaped by people, whānau and communities.  

I focus on what matters to Māori, our visions, aspirations, and goals for self-determination, abundance, thriving, health, and wellbeing. 

  • If your into co-design/co-creation this is a great example of community engagement.
  • If your interested in communication beyond words then you will enjoy this.
  • If your interested in community – participation – action – research turn this on!
  • If you work in the health sector this presentation is for you.
  • If you or your loved one has been impacted by the heath system this is dedicated to you.
