Join Susanne, a cultural materials conservator, in sharing the stories of history, heritage and the objects that tell our stories.

Our past is often seen or touched through objects that represent our whakapapa, ancestry or history. Uncovering the stories that these objects hold can be a personal journey or have bigger implications in our community. Join host, Susanne Rawson, as she shares the stories of cultural materials from Taranaki and beyond.
