Polynesian Creative Cluster
We are supporting an intensive programme for Māori and Pasifika creative entrepreneurs to take advantage of opportunities in Japan and Korea. The objective is to develop a market pathway for their products into the Japanese and Korean markets.
Creative industries is one area where Māori and Pasifika businesses can build high value products, services and experiences which appeal to the world and, in particular, the Japanese and Korean markets. Additionally, the programme is geared towards ensuring there is greater diversity of representation and depth to the Aotearoa brand in the export market. Participants are from the wider creative sector to ensure a diversity of products, experiences and skills, in order to maximise collaborative potential. We have partnered with Oyster Workshop, a Māori- and Pasifika-led organisation to develop and deliver the programme.
