Two Pasifika artists will lead a new pilot initiative to build stronger pathways to the arts and increase support for the Pasifika Disabled community.

Supported by our Pacific Arts Strategy 2018 - 2023, the Toa Residency pilot was initiated by and co-designed with Pati Umaga and Pelenakeke Brown - both previous recipients of the Arts Pasifika Toa Award. The residency will support two new projects, exploring how Pasifika Disabled artists can collaborate and connect digitally.
