Indigenous Diversity Forum – 05 May 2017 08:00-17:00 Location: Soundings Theatre – Te Papa.

Diversity and the shaping of culture.

It’s Oranui’s belief that increasing population diversity in New Zealand is disrupting biculturalism and the partnership between Māori and Pākehā articulated in the Treaty of Waitangi.

A new diversity is most visible in Auckland, now one of the world’s most culturally diverse cities. With 39% of its population born overseas, the city is more diverse than Sydney, Los Angeles, London and New York.

The shaping of culture – including the modern complexities of gender and sexuality – is increasingly influenced by the media, especially social media, through external and international influences.

We welcome your questions and look forward to hosting you at our hui.

Oranui’s Indigenous Diversity Forum on 5 May at Te Papa will explore how New Zealand can transition from biculturalism to multi-culturalism. This will be a seminal discussion at a critical point in our cultural development. Thought leaders from literature, the media, public health and racism education will present their theses.

This forum is for you if you:

·  are interested in cultural issues, especially Māori

·   are interested in diversity

·   are already pondering issues like diversity, new migrant populations, Māori identity

·   have a social conscience

·   want to explore how they can embrace diversity in their respective organisations.

The forum will be relevant for people working in a range of sectors, including but probably not limited to: Health; Education; Social Services; Legal; Research. Please help spread the word.
