KukiCre8tive is about igniting the creative passion of young people aged 8-16 years old through Performing Arts and Film and TV skills. We build young people up, using our professional community; supporting them to lead with creative projects and experiences that let our KukiCre8tives design their creative futures in a safe and professional environment.
KukiCre8tive was established in 2020by Glenda Tuaine and Raed Teariki Ra as a school holiday option and was designed as a safe space for expression and storytelling for many young people who sit on the margins. Originally formed to counteract bullying, and to build a programme for creativity to be a vehicle for expression. KukiCre8tive is an open access space for all young people who want to develop creative performing arts skills.
The workshops are provided by the creative consortium of Motone Productions and ITU Productions. It is an interactive programme with Drama, Dance, Improv, Music, Television and Film making. Each participant learns the concepts and fundamentals of movement, acting, singing, musical rhythm songwriting, scripting, camera techniques the list goes on really as we diversify. We work to provide real outcomes building skills, interest, study opportunities and ultimately careers for our rising stars in the creative industry.
KUKICRE8TIVE is about giving back to build Creative Futures.
