Art boost coming for Taitokerau
Northland Polytech is looking for more students for its Maunga Kura Toi Bachelor of Maori arts degree, which starts in just over a week.
Senior tutor Kura Te Waru-Rewiri says it will open the door to employment opportunities including business, teaching, tourism, public galleries and museums.
The qualification has a strong focus on business and also offers the choice of specialising in teaching or curatorship.
She says Northland was where the contemporary Maori art movement had its beginnings in the 1950s through the influence of Maori art advisors in the schools under the leadership of educationalist Gordon Tovey.
