We’re a small museum in a small country and the good thing about that is that there is always someone you can call on if you’re stuck. In our case we have colleagues at the Whanganui Regional Musuem and Puke Ariki who are always willing to offer guidance and are only a phone call or email away. We also have the support of National Services Te Paerangi who work in partnership with museums, galleries and iwi (tribes) in New Zealand, offering a range of practical and strategic programmes aimed at strengthening the sector. Then there are the South Taranaki District Museum trustees, colleagues at Council, countless professional websites, fellow museum staff on Twitter and so on.
It would be easy to think of us as isolated but in fact we’re not – today, with fast internet access and a phone on every desk, the whole world is only seconds away. Why not pop in and connect with us? We’d love to see you.
