Aotea Utanganui’s mission is to create a bold schedule of professional, informative and attractive exhibitions for the public to enjoy. The exhibitions celebrate the rich history and culture of South Taranaki and the pride that people feel in their district. These exhibitions are predominantly internally-curated exhibitions from our heritage collections and these have been supplemented with touring exhibitions loaned from other cultural institutions. We curate two large temporary exhibitions each year for a duration of six months at a time. We have received funding from the Taranaki Regional Council (TRC) for five major exhibition projects including Port-able: a History of Shipping in South Taranaki , Eltham and Beyond, Across the Centreline, The Wonder Gardens, and Our Milky Ways. We also curate another 3-4 smaller exhibitions in our Livingston Baker Archive & Reading Room.
