As part of a research project to investigate culturally responsive pedagogies in the classroom, Bert van Dijk and Rawiri Hindle worked with the students and staff of St Theresa’s Catholic School to produce a whole school performance based on a local Maori myth, with the creative process as the underlying focus. The brief was that it had to include the children’s ideas and was to be performed by the children (all the children). With the guidance of Bert and Rawiri, the students and teachers were led on a journey of discovery about how to create music, develop dance sequences and act out a myth using their own ideas and their skills within a culturally responsive framework. This was an amazing process that saw both staff and students blossom and grow as they explored their own creativity.

The performance, which was the culmination of the process, was performed in the outdoors to a very enthusiastic and appreciative parent audience. Throughout the whole process, teachers found Bert to be very enthusiastic, passionate about his craft and full of creative ideas. He listened to the ideas of the children and incorporated them into the overall performance, which gave the children ownership of what they were doing.

Both Rawiri and Bert were extremely well organized, very disciplined in their approach, and inclusive of children’s ideas and found ways to accommodate the diverse talents of students. Bert was a perfectionist with high expectations to which students responded. At the end of the process the children had developed a very warm relationship with Rawiri and Bert and appreciated what they had taught them through the creative process.

I have no hesitation to recommend Bert and Rawiri to facilitate a creative process that is guaranteed to be stimulating and transformative for all participants!

I took part in the TOIORA Presence training by Bert van Dijk and Rawiri Hindle, which was a very fine experience. The exercises in presence were extraordinary and very beneficial. Getting information about the Māori ritual of the Powhiri filled me with respect and humility. Furthermore, I found it very pleasant to make a link between the ritual and the intake of a coach journey. All in all, it was a training I very much appreciated because of the great personalities and professionalism of both trainers, as well as the content. It inspired me to be more present in the here and now.
