Remembering our legacy
We recognise the need to mark the important anniversaries of events that have had a significant impact on the nation as a whole and on the pattern of New Zealand life. We support the commemoration programmes set by the Ministry of Culture and Heritage for Aotearoa through our exhibitions, events and ceremonies.
These include anniversaries such as the 100th anniversary of the First World War (WW100) and the 125th anniversary of women’s suffrage in New Zealand (Suffrage 125).
In collaboration with our local partners (such as the RSA) and with support from the Ministry of Culture and Heritage, we act as a central point where the community can connect with all of New Zealand’s significant commemorations including ANZAC Day, Armistice Day and those of historical significance to Tangata Whenua.
