Treasures from the Vaults is your quarterly opportunity to get behind the scenes and learn more about the treasures we collect and care for at Ngā Taonga.

This month we are showcasing the Documentation and Artefacts Collection.

Our Documentation Archivists Mishelle Muagututi'a and Tracy White will present "Exit Through the Vault" where they will talk about their work and share some favourite items from the vaults. In a quick-fire journey through their highlights and special discoveries they look at how these carefully preserved items are shared with researchers both locally and internationally.

Our documentation collection includes a diverse range of materials, relating to Aotearoa’s film, television and sound production and broadcast histories.

From Aunt Daisy to bro'Town, Levin to Len Lye and places between and beyond - the collection includes around 200,000 images; more than 2,000 posters; around 1,000 scripts; production records; private papers, scrapbooks and manuscripts; animation cells; paintings and graphic design; glass slide cinema advertising and magic lantern slides from the pre-cinema era.

The collection also contains artefacts such as film and television props, costumes, television sets, cameras, microphones, radios, and projection technologies from across the ages.

Each item is part of a rich contextual legacy that helps to illuminate the lives and work of Aotearoa’s storytellers in broadcasting and film. Come and see which the Documentation Team will choose and finish the evening with a Q&A session with our experts.

Tickets for this special evening come with a complimentary drink (house wine, beer or OJ).
