Poster Creation

Create a poster that portrays how we support our whānau who experience mental health and addiction concerns, plus shows a connection to whānau and tamariki in Aotearoa. 

This could encompass culture, nature, aroha, maunga, home and/or community.

Entries are open to everyone of all ages

Entries require a short text with the whakaaro (thoughts and background) to provide context for your poster.
Here are some ideas for your poster, although we encourage you to develop your own.

  • Supporting whānau
  • Empower our tamariki
  • We are whānau
  • Whānau kōrero
  • Connecting with your tamariki
  • Ko e tau fanau ko e uho mo e alito he magafaoa
    Children are the centre and the pupil of the families' eyes
  • Koe fanau koe hakau ‘oe ‘aho ni ka koe fonua ia ‘oe kaha’u
    Our children are the reef of today but the island of tomorrow
