Many thanks to Kākano Cafe and Cookery School for hosting us!

Lana Lopesi is a Samoan, Auckland-based artist whose work in Seki explores how the staple diet of Pacific diaspora communities changes when disconnected from organic and self-sustaining practices which were previously enabled by close relationships to the land and sea.

Jade Temepera is the founder of Kākano, a café and cookery school. Working in the community for over 12 years with mainly whānau / families, she saw first hand how having a reliable network of friends and whānau was a vital but an often missing link in communities where skill based learning, connectedness, and precious time learning and teaching have skipped the generations.
