Historic Places Aotearoa invites heritage groups and heritage advocates to the Hawkes Bay for a weekend of events and workshops.
The aim of the weekend is to help strengthen the heritage networks in New Zealand and to consider how these networks can be developed to better advocate for the protection our heritage throughout New Zealand.
The workshop on the Saturday afternoon will be facilitated with this aim in mind.
We believe that it is important that Heritage Groups and Advocates develop a strong voice, so that as a collective we can greater influence government and local government, to ensure that our heritage is recognised and protected for future generations to enjoy and cherish.
“Each of us on our own can only do so much – speaking together, as one, our voice will carry so much further,” says HPA President James Blackburne
