Te Tuhi Mareikura is proud to be supporting a team of Community Creative Arts and Māori Development agencies to establish an annual celebration of esteemed creative achievers of ngā uri iwi o Tauranga Moana with a celebratory Inaugural Awards Evening on 24th June 2022 - Aotearoa’s first official public holiday marking Matariki, the Māori New Year.

According to chairperson Julie Paama-Pengelly “creatives from this rohe have quietly been leading the charge to transform our visual experience of our stories and practices in ways that have gained national and international recognition. It is timely that we align these ‘stars’ within our psyche and honour them for our generations to come, and when better than our national Matariki holiday, to set our future aspirations”. Ngā Tohu Toi mo nga uri iwi o te rohe o Tauranga Moana is setting the bar high, for our future creatives to aspire to.
