M.A.T.C.H (Maoriland Ahi Creative Tech Hub) is a creative space for rangatahi to use and unleash their creative thinking and problem-solving skills to develop and build creative solutions for our future.
The M.A.T.C.H Intensifier is a Māori focussed pathway to help rangatahi enter the creative tech industry.
Based in sunny Otaki on the Kapiti coast it involves an intensive 6-Week training block giving rangatahi the insight into the technical tools needed to make it in the industry, the processes it takes to get mahi done and the mental mindset to succeed!
M.A.T.C.H completed their first intake a few weeks ago on November 27th 2020 with a cohort of eight tauira. They were put through their paces growing not only their ability to learn quickly new skills and tools but increasing their mental ability to handle pressure.
MATCH is welcoming applications for their second intake running January 25th – Friday 5th March.
Once you graduate you will enter 12 weeks of paid work placement and gaining that valuable experience of completing projects, working in teams and problem solving within the industry.
If you are a rangatahi Māori aged between 18-24 years old, are not in work or education and are looking to grow your skills or spark new skills in the animation industry then apply here
