A sunrise at Mitimiti (after Hone Tuwhare)

Recently National Services Te Paerangi ran a workshop on Digital Photography and Paper Conservation for Iwi, in partnership with the National Preservation Office. This workshop was held at Mātihetihe Marae at Mitimiti in Northland.

Vicki-Anne Heikell of the National Preservation Office delivered the paper conservation component of this workshop, and she has written a lovely piece on the experience which you can read via the link below.

The National Preservation Office Te Tari Tohu Taonga provides preservation advice and training to iwi, hapū and whānau. This includes marae-based workshops with the aim to provide practical preservation advice so whānau can care for their own collections in their own communities.
