Hui Whakaoranga

Manatu Hauora


Hui Whakaoranga focuses on taking a generational approach to hauora Māori. We travelled alongside the Māori Health Team at Manatu Hauora to support hauora Māori by illustrating the wawata, kōrero and whakaaro of communities from Ōtepoti to Waitangi.

Several participants requested copies of the live illustrations to take back home or to their workplace. The illustration of Tā Mason Durie’s powerful and inspiring kōrero in was particularly popular with participants.

This event series was a great example of the versatility of illustration, as it included live in-person illustration, a virtual hui liveillustrated over Zoom and some illustrations drawn afterwards for publication in the report.


“The LoLi team managed to turn the kōrero shared at the hui into beautiful and memorable illustrations. These illustrations have had a profound impact in the hearts and minds of participants and us here at Manatū Hauora, translating ideas and inspirations into a form of creative communication that will continue to influence the future of Māori wellbeing. I’ve been very impressed by their high level of competency to understand and navigate te ao Māori, including a sufficient level of te reo Māori expertise. Their friendly and enthusiastic character has made a huge impact on us organisers of the hui and participants alike.”
