 Taonga Tuku Iho: Family Treasures

 13 August 2016 – 9 October 2016

 

 

Everyone has something in their family that has been handed down from generation to generation, it’s often the stories that go with them that make them special.

 

Here is an opportunity to have your family treasure on display at Tairāwhiti Museum in an exhibition called Taonga Tuku Iho: Family Treasures. Your taonga/treasure could be an object, a song, a tradition, a dance, a poem or a story.We’re interested in humble things that have meaning to your family. The stories need to be told from a school aged child’s perspective.

 

All you need to do is send us a picture of your taonga (for physical objects), and a short written story, or short video telling us what you have.

 

Want to know more, give us a call or email; info@tairawhitimuseum.org.nz.

 

We’ve extended the date to receive applications to July 15th. Participation
in this exhibtion is open to all people living in Tairāwhiti.
