Why do elections make me feel like s*?
Paiaka will be hosting an afternoon of kõrero and what's described as political realness on 27 August 2017 from 3pm - 5pm at Innermost Gradens
Sunday 27 August 2017 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Anger, resignation, hopelessness, nausea, anxiety, boredom; just a few feelings you might notice bubble up when election season circus rolls around again. Why do elections make us feel this way? Why don't they create the change we desperately need? And where else might we find hope?
JOIN PAIAKA FOR AN AFTERNOON OF KORERO, WHERE WE TAKE A STEP BACK FROM THE RACE-BATING AND CLICKBAIT SCANDALS, AND LOOK AT THE HISTORY, CONTEXT AND STRUCTURES THAT MAKE UP OUR ELECTORAL POLITICAL SYSTEM, AND WHY MORE AND MORE OF US ARE OPTING OUT.
We are stoked to present Moana Jackson giving us some history and wisdom, followed by a panel of young voices serving fresh views and political realness.
