Kurawaka Productions

Book for an event

Kurawaka Productions is a studio of Māori artists and creatives. Co-developed by a veteran animator and a Ranui-based kura kaupapa, it began as a specialist arts programme offering talented young Māori a gateway into animation and design work. The Kurawaka team has completed a number of high-profile projects, including several animated shorts. They also contributed a selection of portraits of Māori achievers for Kia Kaha by Stacey Morrison and Jeremy Sherlock. My First Words about Tikanga Māori is their first picture-book collaboration.
