Conference venues

Our MA15 conference is hosted by Otago Museum and other museums and galleries in Dunedin.

Please note that Dunedin is a university town, and there will be graduation ceremonies during conference week - graduates families descend on Dunedin and book out hotels, motels and rental cars, so make sure you book early!

H D Skinner Annex, Otago Museum

Wednesday 6 May 
Pre-conference meetings and workshops will be held in various venues at Otago Museum, including the evening Mihi Whakatau welcome and function.
Dinners that evening are at nearby venues.

Thursday 7 May
Buses will take us from the city (Otago Museum) to spend the morning at Otakou Marae, a scenic drive out on Otago Peninsula. In the afternoon we split into 5 groups for presentations and visits to nearby sites, institutions and organisations. One group will stay at the marae. Buses will deliver us back to the city in time to prepare for the evening events.

Dunedin Public Art Gallery will host the pre-dinner reception, and the Awards celebration will be at Toitū Otago Settlers Museum's Josephine Foyer.

Friday 8 May
The conference sessions will once again be at Otago Museum.


Dunedin has a huge range of amenities and attractions, so plan an extra day or 3 to explore. Check out visit Dunedin for what to see and do.
The city won New Zealand's Gigatown competition, which will see Dunedin get the first Gigabit broadband connection network.
Dunedin has also recently been recognised as a UNESCO City of Literature. There are now 11 worldwide, and each country can only have one city designated.
