Māori Poet, spoken word performer, actor and battle rap artist Te Kahu Rolleston (Ngai Te Rangi) won the national poetry slam competition ion 2014 and has since performed his work nation wide and internationally working particularly with youth, schools and community groups. He says “I create poetry and help other people to create poetry that links people to people and places. If you are connected with people and the place you are at, you are much more likely to protect those things”. Te Kahu believes performance is a way of communicating important messages and information.
Te Kahu will be delivering workshops specifically for our rangatahi as part of our creative writing programme dedicated to Year 12 and Year 13 students.
