Join us at Te Whare Waiutuutu Kate Sheppard House

We would love for you to join us and hear Sacha McMeeking, Head of School Kāi Tahu, Māui Lab Co-Director University of Canterbury, speak as our first speaker for the Christchurch Foundation & Te Whare Waiutuutu Kate Sheppard House, Heritage NZ Pouhere Taonga Speaker Series collaboration.

The Speaker Series leads in to the Memorial weekend September 19, of the Bill being passed earning women the right to vote. 

Sacha is a true changemaker mirroring the ethos of Kate.

Sacha brings a serial entrepreneur’s approach to working with and for Iwi Māori. From instigating United Nations proceedings to architecting a Māori social enterprise fund and leading commercial negotiations, she is known for solution-building that meets Iwi Māori aspirations.

Registration for the event is free.  Seats are strictly limited. A koha/donation on the night would be appreciated to these two great Kate Sheppard legacy initiatives.
