This is a self-directed programme in practical art and design. There is opportunity to study a specialised area of work and to work alongside others with access to resources not normally available to individual artists and craftspeople.

“Self-belief is the essence of success”
My original research contribution to Māori Knowledge & Development has been in two main areas, urbanisation and tribalisation. Urbanisation as a phenomenon has received little serious attention outside of the work Joan Metge in the 1960s. There has been a tendency to treat urbanization as the antithesis of traditional Māori life even though 80% of Māori live in an urban situation.
