Festival of Adult Learning

September 6–12, 2021

Adult learning can take place at many different places and levels of the community. The Festival of Adult Learning Ahurei Ākonga celebrates adult learning wherever it is happening. 

Covid 19 Update

It is very disappointing to find ourselves in lockdown in the week of our 2021 Festival of Adult Learning Ahurei Ākonga. However we have been here before and successfully navigated our way through it.
Last year in spite of lockdowns we had more than 8,000 people attend festival events!

Because of the current lockdown levels NO face to face events can take place, however many events have already been postponed and organisers will still have a chance to celebrate lifelong learning and the achievements of learners. Whether you decide to cancel, postpone, rejig or take events online you have our full support. 

As a fun activity during this festival week, we encourage you to share on facebook what you and your learners have been learning in your bubbles using the hashtag #bubblelearningnz
