CORE FUNDING PARTNER
Creative New Zealand (CNZ) encourages, promotes and supports the arts in New Zealand for the benefit of all New Zealanders through funding, capability building and international programmes and advocacy.

In 2019, CNZ formed a partnership with the newly formed Toi Ngāpuhi.

CNZ sees this partnership as a key way of supporting regional development in the arts with a focus on ngā toi Māori that is aligned to the vision of CNZ’s strategy for Māori arts.
The outcome of this support will be seeing artists deliver new activities into the community.

Te Hā o Ngā Toi Māori is underpinned by a mātauranga Māori framework which incorporates knowledge – knowledge creativity, knowledge transfer and knowledge reclamation. 

The strategy’s vision is for Māori arts to be visible everywhere and highly valued as part of New Zealand’s distinct identity, and admired globally.
