Ringa Toi Student Exhibition


RTbanner final

He toi tupu, he toi ora, he toi i ahu mai i Hawaiki.

Tomokia ki te whare o Toi. Ko te whare nei i parua iho ki te muka rāwhiti, ki te neko, ki te kaitaka, ki te pakipaki – hei mātakitaki mō te ao whānui e.

Ringa Toi is an annual exhibition that showcases the artwork of secondary school students with a focus on Toi Māori. Work displayed showcases a range of Māori art forms including raranga, kākahu (wearable art), tukutuku, tāniko, whakairo, kōwhaiwhai, mahi-tā (paint, print, spray), uku, whakapakoko (sculpture) and mahi-matihiko (digital).

2021 Exhibition

We are excited to announce that the 2021 Ringa Toi Student Exhibition will be held at Te Papa Tongarewa – Museum of New Zealand, from Thursday 30 September until Sunday 17 October. Participants will be invited to a gala opening of the exhibition on the evening of Wednesday 29 September.

Registrations of interest to participate have now closed.

Artist led workshops
On Wednesday 29 and Thursday 30 September schools will have the opportunity to book in for an artist-led workshop on site at Te Papa. These workshops provide students with the opportunity to learn from nationally and internationally recognised Māori Artists.

Te Papa Back of House tours
Te Papa have also kindly offered ‘behind the scenes’ tours for school and whānau groups who visit the exhibition. This is an exclusive tour of Te Papa’s back of house to see collections that are usually hidden away!
