Maori design agency's
Japan and China visit

Four creatives from Māui Studios in Ōtautahi (Christchurch) went to China and Japan late last year to get a feel for what working in Asia and with Asian peoples is like. Watch their video for insights on the culture and the connections made.

Māui Studios' Japan and China visit

Māui Studios is a kaupapa Māori creative studio based in Christchurch - and the design agency behind the Asia New Zealand Foundation report Perceptions of Asia and Asian Peoples from a Te Ao Māori Perspective.

The Māui team travelled to Japan and China to explore work opportunities, and the Asia New Zealand Foundation Te Whītau Tūhono asked them to film their experiences. While they were travelling, they also spoke to other Kiwis about the opportunities in the region and the cultural connections between Asia and Aotearoa.

Māui Studios were supported by Asia New Zealand Foundation to go on the trip.
