Te Waha o Tāne

Te Waha o Tāne workforce development plan for Toi Pāho (the screen and broadcast sector) follows the inaugural WDP by Toi Mai, Te Wao Nui o Toi (published in 2023). While that highlighted the challenges facing the screen industry’s below- the-line workforce (production crew roles), Te Waha o Tāne focuses on the needs
of the above-the-line workforce (producers, directors and writers). Given the interdependence of the above- and below-the-line workforces for success, many of the insights gained through Te Wao Nui o Toi in 2023 are still relevant in this plan.
