Since 2020, throughout the pandemic, we have continued to identify and recognise the ongoing barriers for Māori Theatre & Dance artists, practitioners, companies and collectives.
Alongside Toi Aotearoa Creative New Zealand’s Te Ha o Ngā Toi Māori Arts Strategy 2019 – 2024, Ngā Hua Toi is being developed to support Māori Theatre & Dance artists and companies. Beginning as a pilot programme, first established in 2020, Ngā Hua Toi is now delivering a programme of kaupapa, initiatives, kōrero and wānanga throughout Aotearoa – including Te Taitokerau, Waikato, Heretaunga, Ōtautahi & Ōtepoti, as well as in the online space.
Currently, The G8 are delivering Ngā Hua Toi as the programme is evolving as we prepare to deliver a series of new initiatives through to Dec 2022.
