Tautai Oceania Internships Programme 2021 – applications open for interns and hosts

Tautai Oceania Internships Programme 2021


After suspending Internships for 2020 due to COVID-19 Tautai are delighted to announce that the Tautai Oceania Internships Programme has re-launched for 2021!


Applications are open from 25th January – 19th March 2021.

Tautai is thrilled to open applications for the Tautai Oceania Internships Programme 2021. The Programme is funded by Creative New Zealand and proudly delivered by Tautai to develop future Pacific arts managers and leaders, support Pacific arts infrastructure, and establish pathways for emerging Pacific practitioners to build their arts management skills.

Five internships are available to Pasifika arts practitioners across all disciplines that are keen to build their experience in arts administration. We are now inviting applications from suitably qualified, hard-working, enthusiastic and determined people who are serious about forging a career in the arts.

The Internships are paid and will run for 20 weeks, working 40 hours a week. The 20-week placement needs to be completed between May – December 2021

The Internship programme will operate on a Tuakana Teina model. Tuakana (mentors) will look after our Teina (interns) – supporting them throughout the duration of their Internship journey and strengthening their connections to the wider Pacific arts sector.

Applicants must have a tertiary qualification and/or a minimum of three years of continuous experience working within the arts.

Once confirmed, Tautai will work with the selected interns to align placements with appropriate host organisations throughout Aotearoa New Zealand.
