Tautai is thrilled to open applications for the sixth year of the Pasifika Internship Programme. The Programme is funded by Creative New Zealand and proudly delivered by Tautai to develop future Pacific arts managers and leaders, support Pacific arts infrastructure, and establish pathways for emerging Pacific practitioners to build their arts management skills.

Six internships are available to Pasifika arts practitioners across all disciplines that are keen to build their experience in arts administration. We are now inviting applications from suitably qualified, hard-working, enthusiastic and determined people who are serious about forging a career in the arts.

The Internships are paid and will run for 20 weeks, working 40 hours a week. The 20 week placement needs to be completed before December 2019.

From 2019 the Internship programme will operate on a Tuakana Teina model. Three Tuakana (mentors) will each look after two Teina (interns) – supporting them throughout the duration of their Internship journey and strengthening their connections to the wider Pacific arts sector.

Our outstanding Tuakana for 2019 are our pioneering alumni from our first ever intake in 2014 – Grace Taylor, Paul Fagamalo and Amiria Puia-Taylor. You can read more about them in the given link below.

Applicants must have a tertiary qualification and/or minimum of three years continuous experience working within the arts.

Once confirmed, Tautai will work with the selected interns to secure placements with appropriate host organisations throughout Aotearoa New Zealand.




How to apply

To apply, please email a cover letter and a CV to Anna-Louise at tautai@tautai.org

Applications close January 18 2019 and selections will be made by early February 2019.
