Call For Presenters

He Hononga: Connecting Within and Across

This year’s MENZA conference has an overarching theme of hauora where the potential of music education to support wellbeing and health will be shared and collaboratively explored.  Over the three days there will be opportunities to learn about how we can connect within ourselves through music to support wellbeing and with each other across our different sectors, subject disciplines (considering music as a means to connect across curriculum), and across Māori and Pākeha perspectives on music education.  This year the central day of the conference, Puawaiata, will be a tangata whenua led day where indigenous music pedagogy will be centralised and explored in a generative, biculturally collaborative, space. 

 Participants are invited to submit a proposal to present at the conference that aligns with the conference theme.

Speakers will be allocated either 45 minutes (presentations) or 90 minutes(workshops).  There may be an opportunity to deliver your presentation/workshop twice over the conference period.

Decision on presentations/workshops

The conference committee and members of the MENZA board will decide on the final presentations and workshops to be offered.

Presentations will be made available on the MENZA website following the Conference.
