Te Wānanga o Aotearoa were once again the proud sponsors of this unique and popular television renovation show.
Staff from Te Wānanga o Aotearoa were on the road with the Marae DIY team, working with whānau around the motu on some special Toi projects.
Our marae are special places but many iwi face challenges maintaining these cultural treasures and ensuring they continue to be places the entire community can be proud of for many years to come.
Over four days, Marae DIY provides the perfect opportunity for whānau to re-connect with their marae, embrace their community and work together for the future benefit of all.
Marae DIY: the show that has been uniting whanau and renovating marae for 14 years is setting sail again. This time the journey leads us to the 100th renovation and over 9 weeks, draws 9 marae together. 100 renovations is a huge milestone and Marae DIY is a show that is remarkable in its ability to move around Aotearoa, show casing our culture, discovering the stories of our land and celebrating our people.
Behind every marae is a tribe ready to work! And for four days, the whanau and community come together with one common goal, to awhi (care for) their marae. Marae DIY is a living taonga that gives an insiders perspective to the marae and our culture. Whakawhanaungatanga (relationships) is the korowai that wraps the show, and aroha (love) is the reason for our success. Tune in to learn more about the marae near you.
