He Kaupapa
Te Ara arose out of the James Henare Māori Research Centre-Marsden Fund project on entrepreneurial Māori leadership.

The international travelling photographic exhibition and its associated publication Te Ara, has toured Europe, England and Canada. Images by Krzysztof Pfeiffer of leaders in Taitokerau, emerging leaders and children (symbolically representing leaders of tomorrow), are accompanied by historical and other photographs of leaders (for example, Hone Heke, Patuone). The exhibition also has images of ancestral landscapes (such as Niniwa, Hokianga, Te whenua o Maikuku-Treaty grounds at Waitangi) and marae to subtly emphasise the importance of these places for leadership to be expressed.

Conference and seminar presentations accompanying the exhibition have been given in Poland and Germany as well as Vancouver. The exhibition has had much success and has contributed to developing understanding and appreciation of Māori leadership under broad themes 'Past, Present and Future'.

Following its triumphs in England and Poland, the Te Ara: Pathways of Māori leadership exhibition and book travelled to Hamburg in October 2012. Its opening coincided with the 100-year celebration of the meeting house Rauru at the Museum of Ethnology, which was attended by Te Arawa representatives, NZ Embassy staff, PVCM Jim Peters and the exhibition team.

In its most recent overseas experience, in Vancouver, Canada, Te Ara was hosted by the Musqueam people at the Musqueam Cultural Education Resource Centre set alongside the Baskets for Barter exhibition. That exhibition showcased the traditional weaving skills of the Musqueam people.

In March 2014, after Vancouver, Te Ara’s New Zealand premier was held at the Rotorua Museum to much success. On its journey, Te Ara has become a point of connection for other communities and cultures around the world.
