Paula Cuff, Senior Manager Maori Strategy & Partnerships, Creative NZ on Paakiwaha

Creative New Zealand will soon engage with Māori across the length and breadth of Aotearoa as a first step in developing a by Māori for Aotearoa Māori arts strategy.

Creative New Zealand will soon meet with Māori artists and organisations across the length and breadth of Aotearoa as a first step in developing a ‘By Māori, for Aotearoa’ Māori arts strategy.

Paula Cuff, Senior Manager Māori Strategy & Partnerships, says Creative New Zealand is focused on enhancing its support for Māori arts and working in collaboration with government and others to support, nurture and grow Māori arts.

“In developing a Ngā Toi Māori strategy that can best support our artists, it’s essential that we listen to the aspirations Māori have for Ngā Toi Māori, as well as the challenges faced by artists and arts organisations.”

The roadshow intends to further develop Creative New Zealand’s understanding of how the regional landscape for Māori arts and culture impacts social, cultural, economic, and environmental well-being.

“We know that it’s important to engage kanohi ki te kanohi (face-to-face), so we’re taking to the road and visiting artists in their own rohe,” says Paula.

The roadshow consists of 23 regional hui that are being held from Kaitaia in the north to Invercargill in the south. The team will also visit the Chatham Islands as part of their efforts to engage with as many artists and organisations as possible.

“We’re encouraging all Māori artists, arts organisations and iwi to come to the hui so they can share their views and whakaaro about what’s important for them. We’re also keen to hear from others who may have an interest in this space such as iwi entities, community groups and those who share similar goals and objectives.”

John Tamihere: It's remarkable how we can all look and hear someone say or conduct themselves and come away with hugely varying understandings.
Love him or loathe him Winston Peters will be (well, soon to be) Prime Minister

Time for government to step up and sort out 'after-hours debacle' says Tamihere
