Marae DIY

Raglan’s Te Kopua Marae was involved in Marae DIY last year

Te Wānanga o Aotearoa will once again be the broadcast sponsor of the popular television series Marae DIY in 2017. 

Our involvement in the show last year - both on the ground and on screen - was extremely valuable and we want to build on this wonderful opportunity, senior specialist marketing Kahurangi Maxwell says.

“Marae DIY is an excellent way for us to connect at a grass-roots level in a meaningful way,” she says.

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

Following last year’s successful series, Kahurangi says there will be further improvements in 2017.

“We have a lot to learn from our first series and want to improve on that this year.”

This includes collaborating with the takiwā to connect with these important communities.

As part of the organisation’s continued involvement, toi whānau lead and create projects that support the marae, with this considered the most significant contribution from TWoA. 

“We are looking to do the same this year and we’ll see some of our talented kaiako lead toi projects at the various marae,” Kahurangi says.

Tumukahuroa Hone Paul says the sponsorship of Marae DIY is an effective way for Te Wānanga o Aotearoa to enhance its relationship with Māori communities and for kaimahi to be able to contribute to inspirational projects on their marae.

Marae DIY will broadcast later in the year on TV3 and Māori Television.
