Toi Whakaari’s Bachelor of Performing Arts (Management) programme provides students with a solid foundation for careers in performing arts and events management. Graduates of this course are working in industry in NZ and internationally at festivals, at venues, with production companies and across genres in performing arts and events.

Applications for entry in 2015 have now closed.

Toi Whakaari management graduates are collaborative leaders who bring a practical and experiential knowledge of realisation within a goal focused multi discipline performing arts environment. The three-year Bachelor of Performing Arts (Management) was instituted in 2004 and is the first of its kind in New Zealand.

During the programme of study, students have a unique opportunity to have autonomous ownership of areas of realisation and are responsible for budgets; schedules; and crew within a range of areas. They gain technical knowledge alongside the specialist technical students. Our students also gain skills in collaboration and perspective through working and studying closely with other Toi Whakaari students in acting, directing, costume construction and design.
