1:15 Lack of te reo teachers

It's Te Wiki o te Reo Maori, a time to celebrate te reo and it's reviatlisation. But in the discussion about how to keep the language alive there is a problem - a lack of Māori language teachers. 

Many people who are fluent in te reo aren't choosing to train as teachers, so schools that offer it are having a hard time filling positions. 

There's a countrywide shortage and it's likely to get worse. 

Resource Teacher of Māori, Tiri Bailey, who works at Waitara East School in Taranaki, tells us more.

1:25 Walking with your senses

Most of us don't pay a huge amount of attention when we're walking, especially around our own town or city. Same buildings and streets right?

Well a cultural geographer and artist wants us to think about our world, creating a walk designed to make you aware of your surroundings, to take in what's around you. 

Walking - One Sense at a Time is one of more than 70 events taking place around the country for the Festival of Architecture

Creator Iryna Zamuruieva explains why she created this walk.
