Cameron Ah loo-Matamua
 

Artspace is delighted to announce Cameron Ah Loo-Matamua as the 2017 Artspace/Tautai Education Intern.
 
The role is the fifth iteration of our series of internships offered in association with Tautai Contemporary Pacific Arts Trust, initiated to develop an education programme for Artspace that encourages interaction with local schools, and primary, secondary and tertiary students in Auckland, with particular emphasis on reaching and engaging Pacific students at these institutions.
 
Cameron comes to us from the Unitec Institute of Technology Library and brings with them a host of experience in the tertiary sector regarding priority learner engagement and retention. In their previous role they worked toward influencing how a “radical”, “inclusive” or “equitable” praxis might manifest within a learning institution and included their active participation in initiatives within Unitec such as Te Ropu Pokare (the library’s commitment to priority learners), ALLY (Unitec’s commitment to LGBTQI peoples) and iCCAR (Unitec’s Institute for Courageous Conversations About Race).
 
Cameron holds a Bachelor of Arts in English and Art History from the University of Auckland and has been publishing and exhibiting work as an artist and writer since 2012.
 
Cameron will continue the work of our previous Education Interns, complementing their programmes while working to create new avenues and networks to connect young people to artists and with the programming at Artspace.
 
The internship has been made possible by a grant from Creative New Zealand’s Sector Development Incentive fund.

Cameron's hours are Tuesday - Saturday, contact them on education@artspace.org.nz
