A key kaupapa of this wānaka is to develop whanaukataka and strengthen tuākana/tēina relationships within Ngāi Tahu contemporary visual arts.  This Paemanu Wānaka Toi offers opportunities for Ngāi Tahu art practitioners to meet one another, kanohi ki te kanohi. We will workshop, connect, share ideas and aspirations, information, and discuss opportunities for future projects.

We also have 10 scholarships of $200 each towards travel for new tertiary graduates or emerging artists wishing to attend. Apply by 13 October.

All artists please register your place with [email protected] by 27 October.
