Tuia Encounters 250 – May 2018

This year there was a focus in the applications on the Ministry of Culture and Heritage's project Tuia Encounters 250. We will give weight to proposals that can demonstrate their programmes will extend student inquiry on the first meetings between Māori and Europeans during James Cook and the Endeavour’s 1769 voyage to Aotearoa, New Zealand, and the impact of this meeting on the world today.

We propose in the Arts and HPE tender round this year to ask providers how their programmes could include Tuia Encounters 250. For instance museums and art galleries could draw together a collection, activities that encourage student inquiry on what those first encounters might mean to them today, and the way New Zealand art has evolved to reflect our unique nationhood.
