Call for nominations to recognise Arts in Corrections leaders

Do you want to see leaders working in Arts in Corrections recognised for their work in using the arts as a tool to support the rehabilitation of offenders or their reintegration into the community? This year’s Arts Access Awards, presented by Arts Access Aotearoa, have two awards: one recognises Arts in Corrections leaders who exemplify the qualities of Māui and the second recognises the use of the arts within a tikanga-based programme.

Nominations to this year’s Arts Access Awards close at 5pm on Monday 16 April 2018. The two Arts in Corrections awards are:

  • Arts Access Corrections Māui Tikitiki a Taranga Award, recognising an individual who demonstrates the qualities of Māui – innovation, creativity and leadership – in providing cultural inclusion and diversity through the arts within a New Zealand prison that provides and encourages a pathway into rehabilitation
  • Arts Access Corrections Whai Tikanga Award, recognising the outstanding contribution of a community group, organisation, Māori Focus Unit or individual working with the Department of Corrections in a prison or community setting, and using the arts as an integral part of a tikanga programme to encourage a strong cultural identity and support pro-social living.

Arts Access Aotearoa receives funding from the Department of Corrections to provide an Arts in Corrections Advisory Service.

Each award has a nomination form. You are able to nominate yourself or others.

Nominations close at 5pm on Monday 16 April 2018.
