He Kōrero – Pakihere Rokiroki (Podcast Collection)

Community Research is proud to bring to you our podcast channel – He Kōrero. These podcasts share insights, ideas, new ways of thinking and action. They support the important mahi that community researchers, practitioners and organisations are doing to create more equitable outcomes for communities and whānau in Aotearoa.

Our first podcast series is Te Tiriti Kōrero. To accompany these podcasts, we have gathered Te Tiriti resources to help you put Te Tiriti into action.

Our second podcast series is Hoki Whakamuri – Haere Whakamua – looking back to go forward. We have gone back to our best and brightest past webinars and recreated them as podcasts. These podcasts are about illuminating different perspectives and really listening to the aspirations of our communities and whānau. This collection is now available on iHeart radio, Podbean, Spotify and Apple podcasts.

Our third series will share more on Te Tiriti and stories from our Pasifika communities.

Ngā mihi nui to Making Everything Achievable (Kaye Maree Dunn and her team) and Blue Reef (Rob Kitchen) for their exceptional mahi on these podcasts.
