E Kō!  / Hey Girl!

I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life’s a bitch. You’ve got to go out and kick butt
— Maya Angelou

Toi Wāhine are incredibly excited to launch E Kō! as part of the Toi Wāhine festival.

Effectively a 'trade day' E Kō! offers women the opportunity for hands on experience with activities not normally on offer at a female event. With wāhine from different trades on hand to share their knowledge and expertise this day will be a day for inspiring, informing , uniting and empowering with plenty of laughs along the way.

Whether it be learning some basic DIY and how to handle power tools or how to change a tyre, jumpstart a car and becoming familiar with what’s under the hood or mastering a few moves in a self-defence workshop there is plenty to do. 


The Fire Service will be there throwing down the challenge to see if attendees have what it takes to be a Fire fighter along with their virtual reality  experience 'Escape My House'. 


While the Creation Station is a chance to up-skill and up-cycle a garment or piece of bespoke jewellery with the help of our creative and skilled helpers.  

Our hope is that whatever activity is tried you will leave feeling empowered and with a new understanding of what you can achieve by giving it a go!
