M.A.T.C.H presents Kaupapa
May 18 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
LEARN TE REO MĀORI THROUGH PLAY
Kaupapa is about creating sustainably and learning playfully. Kaupapa is a talking description game in te reo māori. Creating an opportunity to fast track your language learning with your friends and whānau. In this game your kōrero is your best tool to communicate and win. It encourages you to think in te reo maori and call on all those words you never knew you had. It’s a way to bring more of te ao maori into your world.
Kaupapa is here to celebrate the vibrance of te whare tapere and the mana of te reo māori.
It’s made with a commitment to kaitiakitanga using recycled and sustainable materials.
Bringing together the akomanga and the katakata. Bringing together old school mātauranga and māori pop culture.
It’s about getting together with friends and whānau and letting your reo flow, at any level of fluency. Kia tākaro – let’s play!
Kaupapa has been developed by Kuruho Wereta and Rosie Remmerswaal. Join Kuruho and Rosie on May 18 to play and learn more about Kaupapa!
