In conjunction with National Services Te Paerangi, Archives New Zealand hosts this special one-day workshop on translating curatorial research into exhibition labels.

This event has been offered as a quick response workshop due to an identified demand in the museum and gallery sector. Please register before 5pm Thursday 7th March if you would like to attend.

 Who will I meet:

  • Liz Grant is a professional writer, editor, tutor, project manager, and filmmaker. She was the leader of the Te Papa writing team before becoming a freelancer.
  • Case studies on recent projects will be presented by Te Papa curators:
    • Puawai Cairns, Curator Maori
    • Stephanie Gibson, Curator History.

 Who is it for?

This is an intermediate level workshop which gives representatives from all sized museums, art galleries, parks, heritage and iwi organisations the opportunity to learn and ask questions about best practices in exhibition label writing and how to translate curatorial research to just a few words for visitors. It is a chance to ask questions, see some examples and examine different types of exhibition text.
