Te Tiaki Takoa Pepa Wānaka: Caring for your whānau collections

Nau mai! Whānau are warmly invited to join Vicki-Anne Heikell (Te Whānau-a Apanui), Alexander Turnbull Library Field Conservator, for a workshop on caring for your own iwi photographs and documents. Vicki-Anne is a paper conservator who advises on preservation of documentary heritage collections for iwi organisations, hapū and marae-based collections. Bring along a small item such as a favourite family photograph, paipera tapu, diary, whakapapa book or photo album – you will be making a conservation box or folder for your taoka. Kāputi provided.
