Rako in the Rotuman language means a place of learning and sharing.

 

It was with this intention that we formed Rako to provide Rotuman and Pacific artists with a safe space to share our art with a focus on creative freedom.

Our spiritual commitment to each other and our creations has enabled Rako  to evolve over the years through an organic process with strong family values as our foundation.

Using virtues and values as the foundation

 

Unity, Excellence, commitment, reverence, humility, love

 

Communication and collaboration - Shared decision making and encouraging individual responsibility

 

​Respecting cultural knowledge and renewing practise

 

Healthy Mind, Body, Spirit - Self discipline, self respect, professional and personal development

 

Respect and love of the environment and encouraging sustainable, ethical practices
