Read more strategy could be adapted to help foster engagement with Pasifika youth. As a New Zealand born Tongan, Dr Janet Tupou knows all about the identity struggles that walking in two worlds can bring. In our first free webinar of 2021, she will discuss her research into the way that creativity is becoming a vessel for Tongan women in New Zealand (‘Tiwis’) to unmute their voices, as they struggle to balance their cultural and personal identities. She will explore how this strategy could be adapted to help foster engagement with Pasifika youth, helping them to express themselves and their opinions, and improve their well-being. Janet says: ‘Encouraging young Pacific people to dispel stereotypes when it comes to creativity is what drives me. Shedding light on how to think and not what to think is an essential ingredient in today’s society.’. The New Zealand Family Violence Clearinghouse is operated by the University of Auckland, under a contract funded by the Ministry of Justice.
