Subscribe and support us by becoming a Paemanu subscription member: 
Ohaurutia ki Paemanu is our subscription/membership offer. 

Paemanu(Paemanu Charitable Trust) pursue a vision to cultivate a vibrant Kāi Tahu visual culture for future generations by exploring Kāi Tahutaka through contemporary visual art.

It is important as a trust that we continue to create opportunities for Kāi tahu contemporary art practitioners, promote awareness of Kāi Tahu toi (art) events and exhibitions and maintain ways for our Kāi Tahu creatives to connect with each other.
In order for us to continue to strengthen and maintain this opportunity as a Trust we have set up
Ohaurutia ki Paemanu as a subscription and membership programme to help with costs associated with administration and maintaining a high quality and consistent offering. 

Our rōpū(group) has been involved in a range of projects including:
Paemanu: Nohoaka Toi at COCA in 2017, and
Paemanu: Tauraka Toi at Dunedin Public Art Gallery in 2021(Dec) - 2022(April).

In 2022 we established the Paemanu Art Collection, which we hope to grow over the years.

Paemanu are keen to strengthen our connections with Kāi Tahu artists, wherever they are in Aotearoa or te ao whanui.

I’m a Ngāi Tahu artist so why do I need to subscribe annually to Paemanu?

Up till now your notification of Paemanu projects has been irregular. We haven’t always got resource

for an administrator to maintain contacts, people change email addresses, our projects often involve different people.

With membership we know each year you want to be involved, you will know you are in the loop,

you can say you are “an active member of Paemanu: Kāi Tahu Contemporary Arts”,

you will receive an annual invitation to wānaka with our amazing artist rōpū.​

I don’t wish to subscribe to Paemanu?

Kei te pai, you are still part of our creative whānau, we will respect your privacy and be in touch when

we can.

Not renewing your August subscription payment will automatically opt you out.
