Creative New Zealand - the Arts Council of New Zealand Toi Aotearoa wishes to call for expressions of interest to manage the Māori Arts Internship Programme for the next three years (2020/21 to 2022/23), with provision for a further three-year extension subject to performance and any relevant changes in the vocational education sector.

We wish to purchase services from a suitably experienced Māori-led arts organisation to develop, deliver and evaluate a high quality, Māori Arts Internship Programme for the next three years (2020/21 – 2022/23).

The programme will:
a) support up to five emerging Māori arts practitioners each year
b) have an arts management focus (providing appropriate Māori arts, cultural and technical knowledge, skills and experience) with an emphasis on increasing the number of emerging Māori Producers
c) embed Creative New Zealand’s minimum standards for internships: (1) paying interns a fair wage of at least $25 per hour to emphasize the value of the intern, improve career sustainability, personal wellbeing and ensure equitable access to these opportunities; (2) providing appropriate project management and mentoring support for interns; (3) ensuring participating hosting arts organisations have the capability and capacity to appropriately support an intern and provide meaningful training; (4) ensuring the establishment and management of clear expectations of all participants (via clear job descriptions and roles and responsibilities, named line-manager, appropriate supervision, mentoring and pastoral care and staff or Board members that can provide cultural support); (5) ensure internships are inclusive and support diversity across New Zealand’s arts sector.
