Charlotte Museum plans a bright future

Fri 28 Oct 2016 In: New Zealand Daily News View at Wayback View at NDHA

The Charlotte Museum has settled into its temporary home and is looking to bring some fresh events to life with your help.   Miriam and Therry at the Charlotte Museum Planning a vibrant future, members of the public are invited to share their ideas for the museum and attend a community meeting where these will be discussed. The Auckland based museum collects and preserves artifacts of lesbian culture in New Zealand. Whether you have ideas for exhibitions and collections, community support and engagement, education, events or a new location, everything is welcome. “We are updating our strategic plan and always ask a few community people for feedback on our plan for the future,” says Miriam Saphira of the Charlotte Museum. “Now with two new trustees we thought it would be a good idea to gather more feedback about how people would like to see Charlotte Museum if they visit in 2021. “We are also wanting to engage some more volunteers and get more buzz. We have spent many hours looking and applying for a permanent home so this has dominated previous strategic and business plans. While our current home is not permanent we want to get on with our events and exhibitions and all the bright ideas people bring to us.” The museum is currently inviting email feedback from people and the meeting will be held on Sunday 6 November, 1.30pm at 8a Bentinck Street, New Lynn. “We would love volunteers to organise an exhibition or an event a few times a year,” says Saphira. “We also have a meeting space that people can use.” To send your feedback, please email
