Toi Matarau Gallery
Toi Matarau is located within the Māoriland Hub, He Whare Tapere – a home for the Indigenous, a home for the arts, a house of inspiration and storytelling where economic, social and cultural wellbeing is supported.
Toi Matarau is the expression of multi mixed media Māori art, encompassing disciplines both traditional and contemporary.
The concept of the gallery originated from the Māoriland Film Festival exhibition in 2019 and went on to become established as a permanent gallery.
Our primary focus is to support emerging, established and high profiled artists of the ART Confederation; Te Āti Awa, Ngāti Raukawa, Ngāti Toa Rangatira. This includes descendants and artists living in Ōtaki, on the Kāpiti Coast, in the greater Wellington Region, Horowhenua, Manawatū, Rangitīkei, Tararua as well as those living away from their home fires.
We also network and invite Māori and Indigenous creatives locally, nationwide and abroad to participate in kaupapa exhibitions and events.
