Public Service Announcement. Re: art
Your whakapapa/ancestral migration story is wanted for an international art competition. Zane explains:
"We're doing a text thing and need stories of how different people or their ancestors arrived in New Zealand and from where. It's up to your interpretation what or how much you write but a paragraph or two from a lot of people would help. Obviously what we're getting at is showing the cultural diversity that makes up New Zealand and the fact that some of us are of European decent and yet have been here for many generations and some of us are recent arrivals and so on."
I suppose the contributions could be anonymous also. I don't want to mention what the competition is in case the concept is plagiarised!
Although any attempted intrusion/supervision of the project by me will be utterly thwarted, I trust Paula and Zane will do justice to your stories, and on behalf of them I thank you in advance.
