Te Hau Maiangi - Voices of Experience

The Bishop’s Action Foundation (BAF) and Access Radio Taranaki (ART) have collaborated to form a space of thought leadership and innovation for Taranaki.

Airing time: Saturdays at midday

The best way to adapt and lead is for those with something to say to tell their stories, their way.  

The Bishop’s Action Foundation (BAF) and Access Radio Taranaki (ART) have collaborated to form a space of thought-leadership and innovation for Taranaki. This partnership brings together an online portal where community groups can access local, national and international innovators talking about their field of expertise and their stories of experience, land and culture.

Together we make accessible a wide spectrum of voices to ignite community inspiration, empowerment and action.
