Explore Southland stories at the Oral History Taster session

Here at the Southland Oral History Project we adamantly believe that in this changing world of communication there is something special about the tradition of oral storytelling and immense value in the art of listening. That not only does everyone’s story matter, but that Southland has a unique voice and story to tell.

Does this sound like something you’d like to know more about? Keen to be involved? Then come along to the Southland Oral History Project taster session where we’ll tell you all about the Project and how you can contribute. It would be wonderful to see you there.

  • Date: Wednesday 13 March
  • Time: 6:30 - 8:00pm
  • Ages: All ages
  • Cost: Free!

Heritage Month

This event is part of Heritage Month; during March the Archives, Family History and Oral History teams are escaping the office, hitting the road and parking their caravan at locations all over Southland.
