Many of New Zealand's most respected Maori artists are graduates of the Master of Maori Visual Arts. More recent graduates attract recognition as emerging talent.
The Master of Maori Visual Arts will push you to produce your best creative work grounded in a deep understanding of Maori or indigenous visual culture. Your supervisors will challenge, guide, disrupt and support you, but -most importantly - they will help you develop your own unique creative practice.
Toioho ki Apiti welcomes all indigenous and Pakeha artists. We encourage engagement in research and applied practices relevant to individual cultural contexts.
This programme is a selected entry programme. This means there are a number of extra requirements you must meet.
Most graduates of the Master of Maori Visual Arts have a full-time or part-time art practice.
The following are just some of the artists who have completed postgraduate study through Toioho ki Apiti:
