This month saw the conclusion of our iwi-in-residence exhibition; Ko Rongowhakaata: The Story of Light and Shadow. We take a look at the journey Te Papa has been on with this iwi over the last four years of their residency.
A cocktail and canape event was held in London on Friday 15th October, the first in-person event for the UK Te Papa Foundation for two years. Generously hosted at the home of Craig Fenton and Meredith Townsley-Fenton, we were joined by 30 guests who enjoyed delicious canapés made by food blogger Meredith and a mixologist providing freshly-made cocktails.
In early November we held an intimate garden event in Martinborough with the support of Chris and Kathy Parkin, who recently gifted the Foundation a significant piece of art - ‘That Vase’ by Dame Robin White.
Partridge Jewellers have come on board as our named partner for our annual major event. Here we talk to Managing Director, Grant Partridge, about the legacy of this iconic brand and the importance of these partnerships.
