Fund for indigenous art collaboration
Creative New Zealand is inviting Maori artists to apply for a $60,000 fund to support collaborations with other indigenous artists.
Senior manager Cath Cardiff says projects in any art form could be supported by the International Indigenous Artform Exchange Fund.
In 2014, the first year it was available, it supported three projects.
Tai Tokerau Maori Collective led by clay artist Colleen Ulrich worked with Aboriginal artists of Central Queensland.
Tawata Productions collaborated with Canada’s Native Earth Performing Arts indigenous theatre company on the WAKA CIIMAN project at the Weesageechak Festival in Toronto.
And Lardelli Arts led by Derek Lardelli worked with Native American North West Coast artists on the Whakaora; Ancient artforms revisited project about the revival and cultural protection of tribal skin marking practices.
