IPUKAREA is a songwriting program dedicated to honouring language, bringing together indigenous participants from both Australia and Aotearoa collaborate in the creation of new songs.  

IPUKAREA is an intensive songwriting residency, providing unique collaborative opportunities for both published and unpublished songwriters and composers, irrespective of genre. The event will take place in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland, NZ at BIG FAN in early October.

IPUKAREA is proudly delivered by the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Music Office (NATSIMO) and APRA AMCOS Aotearoa.
