Internships

Māori Arts Internship (MAI) Programme

Delivered by Toi Māori Aoteroa, on behalf of Creative New Zealand, the programme supports emerging Māori arts practitioners to embark on a career in the arts as managers, professionals and producers. Internships are available for people who are keen to build experience in an arts area of their choice. Host organisations can apply to the programme to provide internship opportunities.

For more information on how to apply to be an intern or a host organisation contact the MAI Programme Administrator at admin@maoriart.org.nz.

“My placement at the New Zealand International Arts Festival took me into areas of planning, documentation and teamwork on a scale I hadn’t experienced previously.”

Pasifika Internship Programme

Delivered by Tautai Contemporary Pacific Arts Trust, on behalf of Creative New Zealand, this programme supports Pasifika practitioners to embark on a career in the arts as managers and administrators. Tautai works with the interns to identify a suitable host organisation and prepare for their internship, providing support throughout the 20-week placement.

For more information on how to apply to be an intern or a host organisation contact Petrina Togi-Sa’ena.

“These internships are vital in that they not only provide wonderful professional development opportunities for those interested in working in arts administration, but also bolster the presence of Pacific people within the sector.”
