                       begins, and continues to be fostered through
                       collective experiences throughout the degree.
                       Exposure to contemporary visual arts, both
                       mainstream and indigenous, is facilitated
                       through visits to galleries, hui, wānanga
                       and exhibition openings. Previously this has
                       included travel to marae and exhibitions in
                       Sydney, Melbourne, Venice, Tokyo, Korea,
                       Hawai’i, Paris, Tahiti, as well as New Zealand.
                       The Toioho ki Āpiti community has extensive
                       professional relationships with curators, public
                       and commercial galleries, and artist networks
                       both nationally and internationally. Students of
                       the programme are able to access and develop
                       connections with these networks to help
                       further their chosen career in the arts.

                                        Puawai says her BMVA gave her the
                                        confidence to express herself and has
                                        helped take her to places not even she
                                        imagined at the beginning of her studies.
                                       “When I started I was really passionate
                                        about painting but the course offers other
                                        art forms like photography and media
                                        studies. Over the years my passion
                                        changed as I started creating videos.”
                                       After graduating Puawai became one of the
                                       presenters on iconic youth TV show Pukana
                                       and has a growing online audience for her
                                       Hey Puawai videos. She credits her success
                                       to the course that awakened her passion for
                                       performance art.
                                       “The amazing lecturers have open minds
                                        about different whakaaro, different types of
                                        work and you’re appreciated for your ideas.
                                        I wouldn’t be where I am today without the
                                        BMVA… the skills to express myself and the
                                        confidence and passion I’ve gained in my art
                                        and in where I come from, in my pepeha.”
                                       A woman of many talents, Puawai was one
                                       of the artists involved in the hit te reo song
                                       Maimoatia which pushed Justin Timberlake
                                       off the top of the NZ iTunes chart in 2016,
                                       and also performed at the national kapa
