Arts Regional Trust
9 Mar 2015
The Arts Regional Trust : Te Taumata Toi-a-Iwi is an arts and creative industries development agency and a leading investor in growing entrepreneurship in Auckland’s creative sector.
Karl graduated with a Bachelor of Performing and Screen Arts in 2007, and has been largely involved in the film industry, growing through the production department and eventually directing and producing the feature length documentary, Dregs in 2012. He currently has a film in development for the Loading Docs documentary launchpad, was a guest speaker at the 2013 Screen Edge Forum for DocoEdge, as well as the curator of Sketch from 2010-2012; a monthly art, music and installation crossover held at the Khuja Lounge.
In 2011, Karl started the Creative Media Collective, which became an organised forum for local artists to meet, share and collaborate across disciplines. Corporate collaborations with Air New Zealand, Westfield and BMW prompted the company to evolve into Monster Valley in 2012, of which he is currently the director. While much of the company’s work is in film production, they remain heavily involved in the local creative arts scene.
