Introduction to Māori Art Class
Looking to understand traditional Māori art forms and contemporary applications of them to use in your art making, teaching or just for making things for your home? This class caters to those that have little to no knowledge of Māori art but have an interest to understand more about the art that is seen in both traditional arenas such as the Marae, to contemporary displays such as in art galleries and logo designs.
There are a number of creative projects that are undertaken so students will be left with something to take home with them. Classes are every Tuesday evening beginning 16 June for 10 weeks from 6.00-8.30pm at the Nelson campus.

Mana Rangatahi Wānanga:

Mana rangatahi is a meaningful and exciting six day 'hīkoi’ of learning that guides a group of our rangatahi through various wāhi tapu in the Ngāti Apa ki te Rā Tō rohe. The wānanga will broaden knowledge and experience of Ngāti Apa ki te Rā Tō history, te reo and tikanga, explore cultural leadership, and strengthen relationships with other Ngāti Apa ki te Rā Tō rangatahi.
The Mana Rangatahi wānanga runs from 11th – 16th July, exploring the depth and meaning of the Marlborough Sounds in relation to our whānau and history. The wānanga is for rangatahi aged 13 – 19 yrs.
