Cultural Narratives, Art & Design Integration

Aukaha works with Kāi Tahu researchers, writers, artists and designers who are able to respond to requests for cultural narratives and expressing those narratives through both the design process and built form. Requests are frequently sought by councils, schools, architects and other sectors to inform decisions on design and planning, educational resources and art projects among other things. Aukaha has the expertise to work closely with stakeholders and clients to ensure Mātauraka Kāi Tahu is appropriately and authentically woven throughout projects and the fabric of the takiwā.
