El-Sistema inspired programmes in NZ
Sistema Aotearoa has operated since April 2011. It began as a partnership between the APO and the Ministry for Culture & Heritage (MCH). Several other New Zealand communities have begun operating programmes encouraged by interest in the Sistema approach in New Zealand.
Sistema NZ is a consortium of 4 active programmes that have received some government funding:
Sistema Aoteaora, Otara Auckland
Te Rōpu El Sistema
In 2013, Sistema Aotearoa initiated Te Rōpu El Sistema (TRES). TRES exists as a special interest group for the support and promotion of El Sistema-inspired activity and is also an informal network of operational or nearly operational, programmes that have adopted, or share similar social and musical aims.
