Māori Arts Internship (MAI) Programme 2019| Calling for Hosts!
Toi Māori Aotearoa are thrilled to be running the Māori Arts Internship (MAI) Programme again in 2019.
What is the MAI Programme?
The programme aims to develop future Māori arts managers, professionals and producers, to support the Māori arts infrastructure, and establish pathways for emerging Māori who wish to embark on a career in the arts.
We have six internships available for people who are keen to build administration and management experience – in the arts area of their choice. We are now inviting expressions of interest from suitable organisations that are able to provide the best possible learning environment for our interns.
HOST ORGANISATION REQUIREMENTS
Organisations that submit an expression of interest to become a host organisation in the MAI Programme must first be able to meet the following criteria. Each organisation must:
- Have a dedicated, senior staff member who can mentor the intern during the course of the intern’s 20 week tenure and oversee the work of the intern.
- Be a New Zealand based arts and cultural organisation for example festivals, theatre or dance companies, performing arts venues, archives and art galleries (including galleries that are operated by a Tertiary Education Organisation). Schools and education organisations are not eligible to be hosts.
- Be able to submit a position description which clearly outlines the capabilities that are required for the role and the key tasks and outcomes that are to be achieved when undertaking the role.
- Be aware of the Health and Safety Act 2015 and must have health and safety policies and procedures within their own organisations.
It would be advantageous, if the intern is able to work on a kaupapa Māori event or project during their tenure.
