This year’s MENZA conference has an overarching theme of hauora where the potential of music education to support wellbeing and health will be shared and collaboratively explored.
Over the three days there will be opportunities to learn about how we can connect within ourselves through music to support wellbeing and with each other across our different sectors, subject disciplines (considering music as a means to connect across the curriculum), and across Māori and Pākeha perspectives on music education.
This year the central day of the conference, Puawaiata, will be a tangata whenua led day where indigenous music pedagogy will be centralised and explored in a generative, biculturally collaborative, space. Keynote presentations and workshops will cover music and movement, taonga puoro, purakau through music and movement, and singer-songwriting, with offerings for all sectors: Early childhood, primary, intermediate, and secondary.There will also be an opportunity at the end of this second day for Māori music educators and artists to connect with each other at a networking hui, as a way of recognising the importance of self-determining spaces for Māori to enable indigenous music/arts pedagogy to thrive in Aotearoa.
This year, the conference will be held at Tauranga Boys College in Tauranga. Watch this space for more information soon. For Further Information about the Conference contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
