Pasifika artists in Aotearoa and the Pacific Islands will be supported to collaborate and share skills and knowledge in a new Digital Moana Nui a Kiva initiative, through our first partnership with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT).

This partnership is supported by our Pacific Arts Strategy 2018–2023 and aligns with MFAT’s new Pacific Resilience focus promoting a peaceful, prosperous and resilient Pacific.

It’s our first formal agreement with MFAT, with both our agencies contributing equally to the $500,000 budget.
