Studying toi is a journey of personal and artistic discovery. As well as learning new skills, you’ll explore your culture and identity, connect with mātauranga Māori (knowledge) and understand the value of being a kaitiaki (promoter and protector) of toi Māori.
You can enrol in a range of toi programmes. We welcome people of all ages, cultures, and backgrounds.
