Anthony’s role involved creating, brokering and maintaining political and cultural relations between government agencies (Arts Council, Historic England, Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Tāonga), owners (National Trust, iwi Ngāti Hinemihi) and local stakeholders (Ngāti Ranana, Guilford Council). Anthony had written support from Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and negotiated an agreement for the return of Hinemihi in exchange for a co-created pan-iwi whare for export. This was done by understanding both tikanga Māori and methods of large British organisations.ga Māori and methods of large British organisations.
We are delighted to welcome Anthony to our community.
