• Fetu ta’i

    Tautai are embarked on an amazing journey opening New Zealand and the world to the many wonders of Pacific art.

    It’s an extremely rewarding and fulfilling venture helping to unlock the potential of the new and existing artists that form part of family. Our Fetu Ta’i donor programme – meaning ‘Guides of the voyage’ in Samoan – is an opportunity to join our journey, where you will in touch with many new and exciting aspects of the art world.

    You will enjoy invitations to four special social events each year. As an honoured friend of Tautai, we’ll also keep in regular contact with you regarding upcoming events and developments in the Tautai community. We launched this special program in October 2013, inviting people to make a commitment to be part of our community, to meet artists, learn more about who they are and what they are doing and to support us so we can support their endeavours. We asked people to make a commitment to giving us an annual donation of $1,000. So far, a number of people have done that, and one couple have very generously made a commitment to giving us $100,000 over the next five years.

    We very much look forward to welcoming you as a cherished friend and supporter of Tautai, and hope it will be a long-term and mutually rewarding partnership. If you would like to join our journey, please call the Tautai Manager Courtney Sina Meredith on 09 376 1665 or email
