We are excited to announce that Te Tuhi Māreikura Trust and Creative Bay of Plenty have been selected as joint Host Organisations for the prestigious 2021 Māori Arts Internship Programme from July to December 2021. This paid internship is funded by Creative New Zealand and managed by Toi Māori Aotearoa and offers valuable professional development experience for emerging Māori arts managers and producers.
Our team will be working with partners at Te Tuhi Māreikura, who are spearheaded by leading Māori artists of the Mātaatua region, to provide a 3-month career development opportunity and support the unique cultural identity of Tauranga Moana. Applications are now open to interested Māori arts practitioners looking to gain knowledge and skills and advance their career in the arts. The intern will assist and support the delivery of Tā Ātea 2021 Cultural series and our upcoming partnership projects supporting Ngā Toi Māori artists and audiences. The intern will gain experience, confidence and skills in arts administration, development and delivery of arts and culture programmes and services, decision-making and problem solving, marketing, audience development, community outreach, and fundraising within a framework that prioritises mātauranga Māori as it applies to:
● Tino rangatiratanga – The Principle of Self-determination
● Taonga Tuku Iho – The Principle of Cultural Aspiration
● Ako Māori – The Principle of Culturally Preferred Pedagogy
● Manaakitanga – The Principle of Equity and Care
To be considered, applicants must be of Māori descent, have a tertiary qualification and/or minimum of three years experience as an artist, creative producer, or arts administrator.
