Creative New Zealand Toi Aotearoa is on a mission to support and strengthen arts and culture media coverage in Aotearoa. A few weeks ago they released a report detailing new research by the name of Visibility Matters – Kia kitea ngā toi e te ma-rea. The report provides benchmark data, mapping the current arts and culture media ecosystem in Aotearoa. It looks at a 12-month period of coverage, from July 2021 to June 2022, analysing content through a range of different lenses. 

Because the arts and media and our bread and butter here on Various Artists, Frances caught up with CNZ Advocacy Lead Tracey Monastra to talk through the report and its implications. 

Whakarongo mai nei!

On Wednesday, five years after first being charged Sir James Hay Wallace, a well-known arts philanthropist and rich lister, was named as the “prominent businessman” who sexually abused three young men. The government has begun the process of stripping Wallace's knighthood.

The news is hard to hear, but perhaps not surprising for many in the arts community. To talk about sexual harm in the arts and what Wallace losing his name suppression may mean for survivors, Frances spoke with Mel Calvesbert, Soundcheck Aotearoa’s Sexual Harm Prevention & Response Advisor.

Thriving at Crossroads is an ongoing UoA study that’s inviting young intersectional members of ethnic minorities to create art reflecting their experiences living in Aotearoa. 

The study will take place through workshops from July through to October, allowing participants to gain access to creative freedom, mentors and resources, professional arts spaces, koha for their time, and food provided during workshop days. 

If you or someone you know is aged between 16-24, identifies as Asian, Latin American, African or Middle Eastern, also identifies as part of another minority group, you can apply over the next week to take part in an awesome project. 

Liam had a chat with researcher Renee Liang about the project, starting off by learning more about the study so far.
