Established in 2015 as a pilot project, Creative Pathways Outreach was designed as the educational arm of Founder and facilitator Lionel Taito-Matamua's Masters Thesis research (VuW) 'Renewing Materials' - finding new ways of approaching recycling and the issue of plastic waste (land and ocean) through 3D-Printing. Enabling new opportunities in the Pacific through technology and education. Our goal is to one day take creative pathways outreach and renewing materials to isolated areas in the pacific and around the world.

Since 2015, Creative Pathways Outreach has collaborated with numerous schools and educational providers, run workshops all over New Zealand, engaged with hundreds of students and exposed hundreds of people to the opportunities of 3D printing and new emerging technology through education and interaction.
