MA members all around the country are members of special interest networks supported by Museums Aotearoa.  

Networks are a great way for you to connect with like-minded people who share your own specific interests.

 Rainbow Museums

The National network of LGBTQI+ people and allies in the GLAM sector (MA membership is not a prerequisite). The network shares resources and information to support the advancement of rainbow inclusion within both workplaces and museum practice.
