Nga Kete Matauranga E Toru O Kaikohe
Our Pop-up! youth participants designed and built a community public space in the centre of Kaikohe. Youth decided their town needed a space to hang out, play chess, whilst being in a learning environment. They titled this space Nga Kete Matauranga E Toru O Kaikohe, the 3 kete of knowledge. Through this process they experienced design thinking, project management, carried out budgeting, provided marketing and graphics as well as organising the community build and other events. Youth told us they had fun, and proved it by showing up in greater numbers each day. The wider community supported us with their time, funding and enthusiasm.
