TARANAKI LIVING LAB

A Massey University initiative, The Living Lab concept encourages researchers from multiple academic disciplines to collaborate with a community to create a deeper understanding and appreciation of a natural entity (the Wiawhakaiho River) or physical space from many perspectives. Artists, writers and filmmakers collaborated with social scientists, scientific and environmental researchers to tell the various stories of the Wiawhakiaho River and its communities.
