Located in the heart of Ōtaki, the Māoriland Hub is a center of excellence for Māori and Indigenous film and creativity. 

The home of the Māoriland Film Festival and Māoriland Productions, the Māoriland Hub’s year-round activities include Toi Matarau Gallery, Te Ara Toi – arts experiences for rangatahi, M.A.T.C.H – the Māoriland Tech Creative Hub, Māoriland Maara and Māoriland Presents. 

The former department store is a stunning location for live music and events up to 350 people, with high ceilings and wooden floors. 


Māoriland Presents

Māoriland Presents is a series of intimate live music performances at the Māoriland Hub in Ōtaki.

Perfect for new music lovers, discoverers and fans see the artist in a unique way unlike any other wrapped in the incredible atmosphere of Māoriland, an intimate mid sized venue – only 50 mins from Wellington.

Each Māoriland Presents begins with a brief kōrero (rather than an interview) where artists are invited to share who they are,  their why and how.

With the artists consent the gig is filmed and sections or the entire recording made available online as Māoriland Presents. 

Māoriland Presents Artists to date include; Anika Moa, Tama Waipara, Troy Kingi, Anna Coddington, Shayne Carter, Te Kaahu, Maisey Rika, Nadia Reid, Trinity Roots, Sam V, The Modern Māori Quartet, Laughton Kora, Delaney Davidson, The Māori Sidesteps and Julia Deans.
