Bringing the Vision to Life: Matariki 2024

As we move into the second phase of our commissioning round, Toi Hourua is in the process of selecting an artist/arts organisation from round 1 to bring their proofs of concept to full fruition. This next step is about expanding the boundaries of digital art, creating an immersive experience that deeply engages with the themes of Matariki and resonates with audiences in Aotearoa and worldwide. The selected project will exemplify the merging of traditional narratives and modern digital expression, offering a new way to experience and understand the cultural significance of Matariki.

Matariki 2023 Commissioning Round

In the first round of our commissioning process, we extended an invitation to digital artists to submit proposals that interpret the Matariki theme through innovative digital formats. Four exceptional projects were selected to receive seed funding, aimed at developing proofs of concept that harness technology to convey the essence of Matariki. This opportunity encouraged artists to create digital-first experiences, making the rich traditions and narratives of Matariki accessible to a global audience via personal mobile devices.
