Creative New Zealand has held more than 20 regional hui throughout New Zealand.
A final hui will be held on Wednesday 9 May, 6pm-8:30pm at the Millenium Hotel, 71 Mayoral Drive, Auckland.
In the 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 are 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.”
People who haven’t been able to attend a hui but still want to contribute can have their say by completing a simple survey. Depending on the detail of answers it should take no more than 15 minutes.
