About Us - Katarina Mataira and Tuihana Bosch
Katarina and Tuihana, what's your AFN 2017 workshop?
Our workshop is What is 'sacred communication'?
What cultural activity are you looking forward to trying at the AFN conference?
Learning some language, hearing some music, would like to learn how to ‘look’ in ways to become aware of what might otherwise be ‘invisible’.
What is your take on 'sacred communication'?
An essential part of our humanity that has been lost, and we need to regain.
What’s something that might be surprising about you? Or your workshop?
Surprises can be treasures. The workshop style will be a collective exploration, so we look forward to people bringing surprises along.
What's the funniest facilitation moment you have ever had?
Going to Alice Springs AFN conference and discovering there was not only no walls, there was no floor – only sand to draw in!
What pearl of wisdom can you offer beginner facilitators?
Seek out the role models you can learn from and take your own place in this intergenerational change project, called facilitation.
