Tēnā koe, welcome to the Digital Commons.

It's difficult to feel part of an alive community when your experience of reality and of other human beings is being filtered through these pixels.

But these times of lacking kanohi ki te kanohi connections only accentuates the need for humanity, belonging, spirit, communication and compassion. With the physical common space(s) closed for gatherings and happenings, we are asking questions such as:

• How are we able to nurture other accessible spaces that embody these same philosophies and still allow people to come together while physically distant?

• How can we hold conscious awareness, authentically express our creativity, feel the whanaungatanga here on the connected world wide web?

• How can we 'Be' in virtual common space?

Digital wishes of aroha, warmth and safety to you in this moment.

Ngā mihi nui,
