Trip Planner: South Pacific / New Zealand / North Island / Bay of Plenty Region / Rotorua District / Rotorua / New Zealand Maori Arts and Crafts Institute
The New Zealand Māori Arts and Crafts Institute (NZMACI) opened in 1963 in Rotorua, New Zealand due to the impending threat of the loss of traditional Māori arts. In 1926 a Māori Arts and Crafts school had been established in Rotorua by Sir Āpirana Ngata, and the new school continued the tradition in a location well-established for traditional Māori arts and crafts. The location of school at Whakarewarewa enabled easy access to the lucrative tourist market, which continues to be a substantial source of sales.A visit to New Zealand Maori Arts and Crafts Institute represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Rotorua trip itinerary builder app to plot your vacation.
