MA Events

Meet, share and learn at Museums Aotearoa's Regional Huihui happening across the country in September, October & November.

An opportunity to get together, to meet your colleagues and peers, to talk about the big issues that affect us and to hear about Museums Aotearoa's new strategic plans.

The theme for this year is 'Museums, Galleries and Wellbeing'.

MA Executive Director Phillipa Tocker will get the ball rolling with an update on MA's recent activities such as our submission on the Ministry for Culture & Heritage's discussion paper on Culture, Wellbeing and the Living Standards Framework.

We will also be discussing the strategic direction of MA in the future and seeking your input on what MA could and should be doing more of.

Pitopito kōrero

Time for you to talk. We're asking you to share your experience of well-being in the workplace, to share hints or tips, to make suggestions or give examples of positive and negative practices or initiatives you've been involved in or heard about in short 5 minute talks or presentations.


And there will be time for socialising over some kai and a cuppa. We won't be providing a full lunch but we will have snacks and you are welcome to bring your own lunch with you too.

Register for the Regional Huihui now.

Registrations for each Hui closes 5 days before each event so we can make sure there are enough scones for everyone.
