Connection Pod Cast Kōrero
Date:11:00am to 5:30pm on 18 August - 29 September 21
The Green Lab is bringing back our Green Connection Pod to our new pop up, understorey. Our Green Connection Pod was designed to get people talking, and was first programmed for MHAW in 2019. It is a flatpack, circular wooden seating area, enveloped by greenery; it’s a great space to have a kōrero.
We are inviting applications from Ōtautahi locals to host a lunch time drop in session in the Pod during our six weeks at understorey which lead up to MHAW (18th August - 29th September), where they can share a skill, offer mentorship, advice, talk about their projects/work, or simply have fun conversations with anyone who stops by. This is part of our ongoing efforts to connect like-minded folk in Ōtautahi, and connects with this year's Mental Health Awareness Week theme; Mā te kōrero, ka ora - Take time to kōrero.
Understorey is a free to access, community, events, co-working, and collaboration space. For six weeks from August 18th-29th September, the stunning Arts Centre Gym will be transformed into a multifunctional plant haven. During the day and often into the evenings over the six week pop-up, we will be hosting events, conversations, and opportunities to join community groups, innovators and organisations as they share with us all what they love to do.
