2021 Piritahi Day

Piritahi call back day workshops

Mind over Manner - Keynote Speakers


Mind Over Manner is a charity organisation that presents public workshops to foster theatre for social change.

Mind Over Manner uses applied theatre techniques and works with a team of professional theatre practitioners and audiences so whanau, caregivers, teachers, and service providers have the chance to participate and reassess their responses to many unexpected and difficult situations.

Marlborough educators were fortunate to be part of Mind Over Manners workshop in January 2021 and there was such a positivity after each of them across all sectors of education. Below are the readings, briefings and workshop notes from the day.
