Te Taumata Toi-a-Iwi has prepared a submission towards the development of Manatū Taonga, Ministry of Culture and Heritage’s Long Term Insights Briefing (LTIB). The submissions received by the Ministry will be used to shape the content and detail of the draft LTIB which will be made available in the second stage of consultation. Submissions closed on 26 November 2021.
The content of our submission is focused on a call for engagement towards the development of national vision and strategy for the sector. Using insights and learning from our own sector engagement across 2020-21, the submission also responds to the Briefing’s focus question, what are the components of an impactful and sustainable cultural sector in the future?
Long Term Insights Briefings are a newly introduced departmental requirement that are to be undertaken at least once every three years. The Briefings are “think pieces on the future, not government policy. The requirement to publish a Briefing is a statutory duty on departmental chief executives, independent of ministers.”
