- In May, we ran a spiral themed finger painting workshop and these pieces are now on display at the museum – come check them out!
Pop Up Museum
If you are interested in having the popup museum to visit your group or your town then let us know!
Miriam Saphira, the Trust founder, will be bringing a display of a tee-shirt quilt, badges, magazines, information banners with 2 films and a performance.
Our last pop up was in Tauranga! Successful and we’re looking at doing more popups in areas more local to the museum.
We would love it if some local groups could get in contact about us coming to visit with our pop up! Currently we’re interested in doing a pop up in the North Shore and somewhere in South Auckland. We would need a suggestion of an affordable location to hold the pop up and some help with spreading the word!
The next pop-up will be in Hamilton on the 24th/25th of November.
Have a look at the drop down menus by hovering over the headings for more information on some of these events as they get closer!
Feel free to get in contact and let us know what YOU want to see @charlotte! We will do our best to make it happen!
