TE URU MAIRE – THE MĀORILAND RANGATAHI STRATEGY

“Te Uru Maire” unites film, creativity, innovation and technology to develop rangatahi for the future of work as story leaders, creatives and entrepreneurs.

The Māoriland Charitable Trust believes in giving Māori youth access to the tools and skills to create their own stories and to connect with other Indigenous storytellers worldwide. In the history of humankind, there has never been a greater need for storytellers as we look for answers to climate change, food and water access and other pressing issues. Māoriland also believes Indigenous youth have unique perspectives and creativity that can be realised through digital technologies such as AR and VR with them as key owners and creatives.

Te Uru Maire is connected to industry with pathways into high-value creative work. In this way, rangatahi Maori can contribute to the wellbeing of their whānau and wider community with an underlying commitment to tackling social and environmental issues for the benefit of the planet.

Our goal is to work with 700 rangatahi annually at the Māoriland Hub with a focus on those aged 12 – 24. 

Rangatahi who participate in activities at the Māoriland Hub will gain the following outcomes: 

  • Individualised industry facing experiences and training with a clear pathway into future work. 
  • Rangatahi connected with Indigenous rangatahi globally – creating new networks for creation and distribution of work. 
  • Rangatahi supported into tertiary study and paid employment. 
  • Rangatahi directly employed as volunteers and paid staff by the Māoriland Charitable Trust. 
  • Rangatahi platformed as future creatives within global festivals. 

Māoriland Hub operates with support from the NZ Film Commission, Victoria University (CMIC – Computational Media Innovation Centre), Indigilab (Sydney, Australia), ImagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival (Toronto, Canada), European Film Market (Berlin, Germany), Canada Council for the Arts, Te Mangai Paho, Skabmagovat (Inari, Finland).
