Hilary Cottam talks about “inverting the system”, through inversions of time and inversions of power. This is all part of the transformation she argues for from “transactional welfare” to “relational welfare”. At the heart of her thinking is the idea that the welfare system should be focussed on creating capability not managing dependence. For her, one of the best ways of creating capability is by broadening our social connections – creating groups that have people from different backgrounds with different skills, connections and experiences to share.

Fried Bread talks to people who work for Government Departments in Aotearoa about their experiences and how they are trying to do the best for Māori. It is humble and intimate and aims to interrogate the yucky parts of ourselves and in the process nourish our wairua with a bit of bravery and a laugh or two. It is a monthly release, from February 2020, and is 30 to 45 minutes long. Interviewees can be anonymous if they want to and cannot name or shame anyone or their workplace. The interviewees could be on the frontline doing the hard yards, at a regional office taking the credit for the frontline work or at the national office thinking they are making relevant things. (That was a joke.)
