Museums Aotearoa Regional Forum(s)

Museums Aotearoa is planning more regional meetings around the country for October and November 2014.

Last year these meetings were highly popular. Participants told us they especially appreciated the opportunity to get together and network with museum colleagues from their region.

This year the meetings will be based around a topic or special guest speaker and will include the opportunity to hear and present short ‘pecha kucha’ style presentations.

Click here to let us know what topics you would like to see covered, speakers you would like to hear from or if you would like to do a short presentation.


All forums will start with morning/afternoon tea or a light lunch followed by some short presentations and an informal networking/workshop session.
