Wai-te-ata Press extends the reach of the academy to engage the wider Wellington community with the past, present and future of print and books.

Wai-te-ata Engagement

Through its vibrant Book Arts Studio, Chinese Scholars’ Studio, and other cross-cultural engagement initiatives, Wai-te-ata Press reaches out to contemporary writers, translators, illustrators, and designers from around New Zealand and overseas; with staff and students at Victoria University of Wellington as well as in secondary schools throughout the country; with alumni, friends, benefactors and diplomats; with local communities, interested publics, and whanau. The very nature of our engagement is public, high impact, and wide-ranging, speaking to the interests, expectations and education of all ages and ethnicities, as well as linguistic, cultural and religious backgrounds.
