No Tauranga ahau Ko Ngāi te rangi me Ngāti Ranginui ōku iwi
Kia ora, ko Te Aorewa Rolleston tōku ingoa. The arts is something I love because it has provided a valuable medium for story-telling which runs through the blood of many indigenous cultures. I first became connected to story-telling through music as a child through my family and learning to play instruments, it helped me overcome a lot of things growing up.
Now fast forward I am still connected to the arts more than ever and hope to continue to learn more and work alongside others so that these stories we create help ourselves as well as our communities to overcome the many barriers in front of us and become tales for years to come.
