Taku Tohu

From activism to #slacktivism, your class will work as a team in the OnTV studio to produce a live-recorded, creative news show that investigates activism from past to present, and how young people make their mark both online and irl.

Your students will be engaged with acting, directing, and laughter as they are encouraged to learn new skills in a safe environment. They’ll look back at the efforts that led to the creation of the Women’s Suffrage Petition and Te Tiriti o Waitangi and how this compares with today’s online campaign culture.

They’ll create their new online campaign and will look at how viral photos can have unexpected consequences! Your class will leave with an understanding of how past activism changed the world for today, and how their actions can change the world tomorrow.

This experience links well with the He Tohu exhibition at the National Library.

The educator was able to relate to our students (16-18 year olds) really well and he changed their attitudes towards the experience into a positive one.
