See what we did last year!

The Incubator Creative Hub & our team at Okorore Ngā Toi Māori are committed to bringing a diverse array of Toi Māori Arts events to the Tauranga Moana Community. 

Every year we work alongside the Matariki Tauranga Moana committee and together we contribute to a city-wide calendar of events.

This year is no exception and we welcome you to celebrate the launch of what will be our biggest and most diverse programme yet!
