We are at a point in time where the biggest challenge we face is keeping up with the pace of change. My goal is to help people make technology work for them, and to develop a critical lens when using it, so that as people, we don't lose our identity in the process.
KimKam works with people, families, communities and organisations to facilitate their solutions to the struggles we face every day. This is at the heart of Social Innovation, and understanding that our ability to cope with change is tied with our capacity to cooperate, collaborate and create new futures for ourselves and the people around us.
As much as technology, apps and devices become part of our world, the single biggest capacity we have, is our creativity. My goal is to help people unlock theirs, so that they can impact the lives of those around them, and to do so in a socially responsible, ethical and empathetic way.
What does KimKam mean? Basically it's the initials of myself and my wife, and it kind of clicked as a name. It may be me that does the work in this environment, but my wife is a huge support and I couldn't do what I do without her. It also means that we stand behind the work we do, and the people we serve.
The aim of this site is to allow me to connect with people that need the help and expertise we can provide. It's to allow us to share knowledge, to highlight awesome things that are happening with people, communities and this new information age we are in. It's a space for thought and reflection, creative ideas and where we can share the tools we find that actually make our lives easier.
Contact us if you have ideas, feedback or if you want to find out ways I can help you, like I have with other communities and people. Or you can engage me in direct discussion via Facebook. I look forward to hearing from you.
Hi, I'm Kane and I am a "tutu" (Maori for someone with an inquisitive mind). It meant I was often in trouble for pulling apart something or trying something i shouldn't. As I have grown, I have discovered a huge power in that word tutu. I am fueled with a desire to learn, and to help others. I am a writer, musician, film maker, photographer, as well as a designer and technician. Mostly, I'm a facilitator. I'm at my best when I'm bringing out the best in others, when I'm helping them find the answers to their problems.
Over the years I have personally, and through my work, been recognised as a leader in the creation and development of Youth Focused spaces and the programmes. While more likely to push others ahead and into the limelight, it is an honor to be recognised.
