Massey College of Creative Arts has partnered with Tautai Fresh Horizons for the past four years, bringing a fabulous selection of Pasifika artists and designers on campus to share their skills and passions with young aspiring Pasifika creatives.

Students are nominated by their schools to attend the three day event from 11 -13 April, culminating in a showcase that is shared with all particpants and their guests. The Tautai guest tutors offer valuable insight into potential careers in the creative arts, while being provided with short term employment opportunities and supportive connections with tertiary institutions and the wider arts community.

This year Massey is thrilled to be hosting three celebrated Pasifika artists:

Tupe Lualua

Tupe is the founder and director of Wellington-based dance company Le Moana. Tupe has been head Samoan dance Tutor at Whitireia Performing Arts Centre for the past 10 years. She has extensive experience in Samoan dance and has travelled internationally as a performer. She is also an actor, with roles in Polyzygotic and The Factory, the first Pacific Islands Musical Theatre show. Tupe recently starred in The White Guitar, alongside Scribe.

In 2011, she collaborated with Michel Tuffery to choreograph a dance work for the opening of his exhibition at Pataka.

Lindah Le Pou http://www.lindahlepou.com/

Lindah has been a leading fashion designer for over two decades, with her work described as Pacific Couture. She is well known for creating works from natural fibres, using traditional materials in contemporary ways. Lindah frequently exhibits her works and also designs for other corporates and creatives, such as the Southern Institute of Technology and Black Grace dance company, producing costumes for their recent production of Siva.

Matthew Salapu/Anonymouz http://www.anonymouz.co.nz/

Matthew is a full time music producer, composer and teaching artist. He has an extensive range of work and a unique mix of genres, paritcularly hip hop and classical – which is why he is in high demand as a producer and for creative project commissions. A recent project was ‘Resample South Auckland’ , where the environmental sounds of South Auckland began musical creations. Matthew also actively works as a mentor, teaching the craft of music, production and composition.
