We deliver people-powered design.
W E A R E:
A collective of associates experienced in community innovation and change. Effective in authentic collaboration, policy development, co-design, formative evaluation and sustainable transformation. Grounded by proven practice, evidence and relationships, and working to powerfully shift Aotearoa toward our new business-as-usual.
W E B E L I E V E:
Government, iwi, locals, and business must work together to solve complex societal challenges; it is the voice and experience of all parts of the eco-system that will create successful, sustainable outcomes for communities.
Change ebbs and flows, it takes time, and requires building relationships; collaboration, multiple voices, looking for local intelligence, and holding difficult conversations creates trust. From hard places and spaces, new solutions will come.
Organisations that honour Te Tiriti o Waitangi are the future organisations of Aotearoa; it is the values and beliefs of people that help guide the future and success of that place. Honouring the past is what helps guide our future.
We design community and project evaluation strategies and project plans unique to circumstance and place. We facilitate the planning and implementation required to powerfully shift government policy design and legislative development. We deliver authentic community engagement and placemaking. Our associates have years of experience mentoring and coaching in support of community innovation and sustainable development.
