Live your passion. Connect with the traditional arts of our tūpuna.


Māori and Indigenous Arts

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.

In addition to gaining new artistic skills and techniques, Toi students are intrinsically rewarded, as they gain a deeper understanding of themselves and Te Ao Māori (the Māori world).

Learn more about studying in one of our toi programmes from our tauira (students) and kaiako (teachers)
