Naomi Singer, the Director of the new Mangere Arts Centre – Ngā Tohu o Uenuku, was a guest lecturer at Whitecliffe on Tuesday March 22. Naomi spoke to Year 3 BFA Management Studies students on marketing and Nga Tohu o Uenuku.
Having previously worked as a freelance marketer and publicist, Naomi developed a connection with a variety of Arts Organisations and became involved in the development of the Mangere Arts Centre a year before its official opening.
One of the aims of the centre is to showcase artists in the community by providing a professional, high quality venue with a knowledgeable and skilled staff cohort that is passionate about Mangere. The arts centre is for people of all backgrounds and ages, and will offer a wide range of arts experiences. The centre has a particular focus on Maori and Pacific visual and performing arts with the vision of developing a profile of national and international significance.
Mangere Arts Centre - Ngā Tohu o Uenuku was officially opened on September 3, 2010 and is now open 7 days a week except for public holidays.
