Beca Christchurch Heritage Festival 2019

Past Encounters - Telling Our Stories

Yesterday's Moments become Tomorrow's Memories. It may be a picture, a sound or a smell that sparks the remembrance of a moment from our past. The feelings that this evokes can be magical. The stories that these moments generate need to be preserved for the future.

This free hands-on workshop will give you time to remember and record some of the moments from the present and the past and give you some tools for continuing this process after the workshop.

Date: Tuesday, 15th October

Time: 9.30am - 12.30pm

Location: Auaha Hīhī / Spark Place, 
He Hononga | Connection, Ground level, Tūranga, Christchurch

No charge - Limited Spaces - Bookings Essential
