Logistics, Leadership, and Development

(p.95) Chapter 4 Logistics, Leadership, and Development
The Pacific Festivals of Aotearoa New Zealand

Jared Mackley-Crump

University of Hawai'i Press

Part two of this book begins with a richly detailed ethnography, reconstructing the fieldwork carried out at both the Pasifika Festival and the Positively Pasifika Festival in 2010. Examples from the fieldwork experience are intertwined with interviews and observations to provide an engaging narrative of these vibrant Pacific festivals. The logistics and leadership involved in each event are explored, highlighting by comparison both similarity and difference. It is proposed that Pacific festivals can be seen as a development tool with a variety of applications, such as engaging communities in processes of cultural transmission and developing event management capabilities. These themes raise the issue of “cultural competencies”, and the importance placed on people engaged in the process of festivalization being able to operate effectively within and across Pacific communities and institutional frameworks, where these can exist in conflict.
