MA11 conference

Thank you to te iwi kāinga o Whakatu Marae, Peter Millward and staff at the Nelson Provincial Museum, Julie Catchpole and staff at The Suter for making us so welcome in Nelson. The sun shone (mostly), we heard from inspiring and thought-provoking presenters, engaged in serious and not-so-serious debate, and were very well provisioned over our three days. And a very special thank you to Kamaya Yates, who stepped in to be our on-the-spot conference coordinator. We’ll be putting some of the information and reports from the conference in the May MAQ, as well are more photos on our website shortly. We’re taking an extra day off on Tuesday to rest up after the conference.

Happy holidays, Phillipa and Sophie
