Creativity with the Atua Wāhine (Whangarei)

mini workshop.png

You Have Something You Want To Create

The question comes up again and again: How can I bring to life this creative project while juggling with the demands of motherhood and everyday living?

Now more than ever, the atua wāhine can provide inspiration and guidance, through their narratives.

In this workshop you will:
- Learn tangible creative processes to assist you to tap into the atua wāhine for creativity
- Explore the characteristics, attributes and narratives of some of the atua wāhine in relation to the cycle of creativity
- Meet other like-minded wāhine

As part of this, Ataria will kōrero about her creative process of drafting the 50,000-word children's fiction manuscript "Hine and Hineteiwaiwa", which was accepted into the Te Papa Tupu programme 2018 (Māori Literature Trust & Huia Publishers).

This is a one and a half hour workshop. Herbal tea and snacks are included. For wāhine Māori only. Limited to four spaces per workshop.


Ataria Rangipikitia Sharman (Ngāpuhi) is the creator of www.awawahine.com, a digital and sometimes physical pop-up space for wāhine to share their writing - unfiltered. She is an event curator for Verb Wellington 2019 and her manuscript for young adults fiction novel 'Hine and Hineteiwaiwa' was selected to take part in Te Papa Tupu 2018; a program for selected Maori writers facilitated by Huia Publishers and the Maori Literature Trust. Earlier on this year, Ataria handed in her Masters of Arts in Māori Studies thesis titled 'Mana Wahine and the Characteristics of our Atua Wāhine.' This is currently under examination. She is based in Whangarei, Te Tai Tokerau.

Monthly writing group in one of the Te Kawa Maui buildings at Victoria University. The objective of this group is to tautoko and manaaki writers to get writing and to share their writing in person, online and/or through traditional publishing. 

Come and meet other writers, share your work in reading sessions, take part in workshops and once we've finished (between 12-1pm) stay on and continue writing until 4pm. We will also do our best to organise guest speakers to come and impart their wisdom to us. 

Kai and wai is provided thanks to the support of Creative New Zealand. There is a kitchen with a microwave right next door. Bring your laptop and writing to work on. Sometimes we might head next door to VicBooks Cafe which is just across the road.

Location: 48 Kelburn Parade Te Ahumairangi/Room 101
