The Tautai Contemporary Pacific Arts Trust was begun in the 1980s by Samoan artist Fatu Feu’u to support the development of contemporary pacific art, and to mentor and educate emerging and established pacific artists. As part of that mentoring, the Trust have for some years now run very successful 'Fresh Horizon' workshops for secondary school students.
