Toi Māori Aotearoa announces its 2015 Māori Arts Internship Programme placements.
Following the success of the first year of the Māori Arts Internship Programme (MAI) in 2014, Toi Māori Aotearoa is very pleased to announce the MAI 2015 placements.
Toi Māori Aotearoa is proud to be working with the following arts organisations to grow future Māori leaders in the arts:
Toi Māori Aotearoa received a large number of great applicants for the intern placements, and is very happy with the final selection of interns. The 2015 MAI Interns are:
- Chloe Cull – The Dowse
- Pehia King – Pataka Museum & Gallery
- Jared Mathieson-Hiakita – The Court Theatre
Toi Māori Aotearoa is thrilled by the positive response from both prospective interns and host organisations, and are confident that we will be able to provide a strong platform for future Māori administrators to help support Māori arts.
This programme aims to develop future Māori arts managers, professionals and producers to support the Māori arts infrastructure, and establish pathways for emerging Māori who wish to embark on a career in the arts. The programme is managed by Toi Māori Aotearoa with funding from Creative New Zealand.
Toi Māori Aotearoa and Creative New Zealand, as well as this year’s hosts and interns are very excited to start this journey. We hope to help build a solid foundation for our intern’s futures, as well as strong relationships with our Host Organsiations.
