The blog is where we'll post news, updates, information about objects in our collection, #betterworkstories, profiles of staff members and visitors, pictures and videos, and really anything we think you'd find interesting. We hope you enjoy.
If there's a topic you'd like us to do a post about, or a post that you think needs a sequel, just let us know!
This weekend we started a series of community workshops at Otago Museum. Yesterday we kicked off discussing and mapping the various climate resources and threats in the Dunedin area. We learned a lot from the community about the harbour, its estuaries, and mining history as we located areas of preservation and vulnerability.
We are excited to be kicking off our work with ZERO1. The American Arts Incubator is an opportunity to work with international artists, designers, and scientists on global and local climate change issues, digital tech, and forms of civic engagement. This involves a lot of interdependent parts, and we will be pulling apart this constellation of components through these posts. The starting point for us is the City of Dunedin in the South Island of New Zealand. Our residency in Dunedin coincides with The New Zealand International Science Festival in July, creating an amazing springboard for this cultural incubator.
By now you may have heard about the latest digital craze, Pokémon Go, taking the world by storm, and it hasn’t taken long for Dunedin-ites to jump on board.
July is going to be a sense-ational month at the Otago Museum, with a calendar full of programmes and events to keep you and your family busy these school holidays.
