Marae DIY

Two down, seven to go.

That’s the count for the latest season of popular marae makeover programme Marae DIY.

Te Wānanga o Aotearoa is once again the broadcast sponsor for the programme and Kim Marsh, national programme manager (Māori visual arts), says our involvement – now into its third year – continues to provide excellent opportunities for everyone involved.

“Our kamahi love being able to help out, whether it’s their own marae or not, and our Toi whānau in particular relish the opportunity to create works especially for each marae,” she says.

It also allowed for whakawhanaungatanga between Te Wānanga o Aotearoa and communities throughout Aotearoa, she says.

“This is then showcased on television, both mainstream and on whakaata Māori.” 

Once again, Toi whānau will be undertaking special projects at four of the marae - Te Rauhina, Orongomai, Waipuna and Moteo - scheduled for makeovers in the new series.

Two marae makeovers have already been completed this season – at Huia Marae in Levin and Poutu Marae in Shannon – while the next is scheduled for this weekend, February 15-18 at Te Rauhina Marae, Wairoa.

The entire series of Marae DIY will broadcast later in the year on TV3 and Māori Television. 

 Marae involved in the programme this series are:  

Huia Marae, Levin – 7-10 December, 2017

Poutu Marae, Shannon – 1-4 February, 2018
