Jade Kake

Jade Kake - Ngāpuhi (Ngāti Hau me Te Parawhau), Te Whakatōhea, Te Arawa, BArchDes, GradCertDigDes, MArch(Prof) - is an architectural designer, housing advocate and researcher. She has experience working directly with Māori land trusts and other Māori organisations to realise their aspirations, particularly around papakāinga housing and marae development, and in working with mana whenua groups to express their cultural values and narratives through the design of their physical environments. Jade is fortunate to live within her home area of Whangarei, where she is leading several projects to support the re-establishment and development of papakāinga communities. In 2019, she will hold a writers’ residency at the Michael King Writers Centre.
