Event description
Come and listen to inspiring Māori and Pasifika creatives who use technology to pursue vibrant careers in Aotearoa and across the globe.

About this Event

How can we encourage more Māori and Pasifika people in creative tech, and who are the movers and shakers in this space?

Māori and Pasifika only represent about 2% of those working in the creative tech sector, yet form a larger part of the population of Aotearoa, especially in diverse Tāmaki Makaurau.

Hosted at our innovative new campus in Wynyard Quarter, we aim to provide a platform to kōrero and talanoa about ways Māori and Pasifika art and design forms have become increasingly relevant and dynamic in this digital era.

This event is part of Techweek2021 and further information can be found here.
