Nui te Kōrero: Talking about Diversity

A one-day seminar for arts and culture organisations held annually.

Nui te Kōrero: Talking about Diversity took place on 7 June 2017. Read the news item, see speaker videos and download resources from the day

Nui te Kōrero: Talking about Diversity (previously The Big Conversation) will examine why diversity and inclusion in the arts are important and how the arts can provide a platform for change.

These ideas will be explored through a combination of workshops, seminars and panel discussions, referring to New Zealand case studies and best practice from a diverse range of arts organisations, including an international keynote speaker.

Who is it for?

Up to 150 places are available for people in arts organisations who lead, manage, programme and market cultural product. You're welcome to bring more than one of your team to help start a big conversation in your organisation.

Priority will be given to staff from organisations in the  Toi Tōtara Haemata or the Toi Uru Kahikatea investment programmes.

“A great setting to think about new opportunities for arts organisations to engage with audiences in new and innovative ways.”
