Amiria uses art to advocate positive change and development for Polynesian youth and families. Through leadership, Amiria facilitates a type of making that maximizes community participation and celebrates cultural identity and diversity particularly in South Auckland, this often is through mural painting. By sharing an understanding of kaitiakitanga she incorporates sustainability, community ownership and youth development through public arts
In 2010 Amiria founded Painting for the People, a community based art collective made up of various artists from South Auckland. They facilitate and work with various groups of everyday people to produce community murals. Their projectsare based around the idea of creating an awareness of the social and health issues in South Auckland. Each project is developed one after the other with various community groups from primary schools to tertiary school, from non-profit organisations to NZ Policing teams, from parents and the neighbourhood to shopkeepers and youth centres.
