Te Hīhiri: the spark for change

HONEST CONVERSATIONS: Do you find yourself saying “We need to have Māori represented.” “We want to do more but we just don’t know how.” What does working with Māori actually look like in practice? The panellists share their perspective of getting comfortable in the uncomfortable, of honouring the journey and pushing through internal barriers, and having honest conversations that matter when it comes time to report on the stats.

Living your values

BUILDING CREATIVE COMMUNITIES: Three leaders from creative spaces across the country explore how their values and their members guide the direction of their organisations, and illuminate the approaches each of their organisations have taken to building their creative communities.

Access employment: creating career pathways

CAREER PATHWAY JOURNEYS: Three creative spaces share their journeys to creating paid employment pathways for their communities. The "what", "why" and "how" are covered with a focus on participant artist voices and career pathway journeys.
