Maoriland Charitable Trust has created M.A.T.C.H to enable and mentor our rangatahi to be leaders in the creative tech industry.

Korakora Matihiko is a two week expo with Indigenous games, indigenous games, animation, vr & 360 and comics including rangatahi workshops and public korero.

M.A.T.C.H - Maoriland's tech creative hub will put new technology in the hands of our rangatahi. 


Writer, musician and visual artist Coco Solid is Jessica Hansell, a Maori/Samoan/German artist from Auckland.

Hansell started out making her own zines/comics and musically came up through underground punk and rap. Hansell created ‘Aroha Bridge’ due mid 2019 and is the first woman to direct and write an adult cartoon in New Zealand for network television. Hansell recently returned from her Fulbright Scholarship at the University of Hawai’i. She is currently finishing her debut novel for publication in 2020.

Coco Solid will present a rangatahi workshop on comics and animation and public korero exploring the importance of indigenous storytelling and creating new archetypes, and what a resource our artistic rangatahi are.

Coco Solid will present a rangatahi workshop (only 30 spaces available!) and a one-off public korero. Tickets to this event are $6, rangatahi are free.
