Aotearoa New Zealand’s histories: histories and heritage sector hui

Aotearoa New Zealand's histories are being incorporated into the national curriculum. The histories and heritage sector hui will be an opportunity for organisations to discuss the planned curriculum changes and what they may mean for their work and community.

In the event of a COVID 19 Alert Level change, we will communicate with registered attendees directly. Hui are unlikely to be held if the venue region is at Alert Level 2. Hui will be cancelled or postponed at Alert Levels 3 or 4.

Registrations for these hui have now closed. We will be sharing some of the key themes and discussion points from the hui series at our Zoom hui on 14 April. See below for further details.

About the histories and heritage sector hui

We are looking forward to welcoming representatives from histories and heritage sector organisations to attend one of our three half-day hui in March.

Areas of discussion will include:

  • the upcoming Aotearoa New Zealand’s histories curriculum
  • your approaches to working with schools in your rohe
  • how you might like to continue working together to support Aotearoa New Zealand’s histories.

An agenda will be sent to registered attendees a week ahead of the workshop.

Who can attend?

The hui are open to anyone working in the heritage or histories sector in organisations that have an educational function, such as museums, libraries and art galleries. You will share the work of your organisation, how it supports education and find opportunities for connecting with the curriculum updates and the work of other organisations.

It will include information about the draft curriculum content and a summary of the key topics discussed at the in-person hui. Due to the number of attendees expected, there will not be an opportunity for discussions on the Zoom, so attendance at one of our in-person sessions should be considered before selecting this option.
