war sTOrY explores methods that are imbued into our psyche to make the sacrifices of war possible. The men and women who become toys on a plastic field whilst others play a blind game of tactics, officials who treat numbers on a page as expendable goods, asking: when do the toys become real? War stories are told from person to person and to become fleeting, changing memories, and more are found in the archives and the documents left behind which can show us a new and larger story. Official records show us that during World War 1, 304 members of the Lyttleton community were actively part of the war story in which, 40 did not come home. All these people are part of Lyttleton’s war sTOrY.

The artist, ceramicist Tatyanna Meharry is the granddaughter of celebrated New Zealand artist Doris Lusk and won the 2013 WoW Supreme Award. Check out the link above for details of the lecture series with University of Canterbury historian Dr Gwen Parsons.
