Okorore - The Incubator Creative Village, 159 17th Ave, Tauranga

Tipene was born considering, observing, questioning. A young man whose creative mind and ability to think deeply and wisely is a wonder to behold. This is the gift of takiwātanga. Vibrancy and new ways of experiencing and understanding life. Part of takiwātanga is the ability to hold quiet space for long periods of time. Tipene reminds us that seeds grow with no sound but rākau (trees) fall with great noise.

The quieter you become, the more you are able to hear. Tipene lives in Rotorua and is the second eldest of seven siblings. Tipene has been expressing himself through art as soon as his hands could clutch a pen or pencil.

Now almost a man, he looks forward to one day receiving his mataora. Tihei mauri Ora!
