We are sharing this list now as an educational resource.We are adding to this list of Maaori artists and arts organisations and trying to make this list both public and easily accessible. Please email keitepaipress@gmail.com if you have any concerns, ideas, information or any more names to add to this list.  Please share this widely, so that we are able to work together to draw intergenerational connections between practices. This mahi is a work in progress and an almost impossible task. It will definitely keep growing, so please help if u can.
