We are committed to accessibility, equity and inclusivity alongside our responsibility to uphold the mana of te ao Māori through both the mahi we do in the industry, and our practices and engagement as a leading arts organisation.

Our industry is made up of passionate individuals who serve the arts, and regardless of which sector you may come from, we welcome any applicants who are serious about joining us on this mission.
