This project was to encourage individuals and groups to make use of the resources of the Gallery of History and elsewhere, (e.g. the Library), to create a project, using one or more forms of media, about an aspect of local Dannevirke history.
The individual projects were completed in 2002 and were to be available for public display.
It was hoped that projects would feature a wide variety of Dannevirke historical topics such as: streets, businesses, community groups, schools, hospitals, Maraes, sports codes, transport, flora, fauna, clothing, library, pa sites, local government politicians, Rangatira, unusual events, A&P shows, inventions, dentistry, mayors, etc.
CONDITIONS OF ENTRY
Projects are presented in one of three forms:
In an A4 clearfile book - 20, 40 or 60 page (and also on computer floppy disk if possible).
As a one square metre model.
On one or more video or audio cassette tapes.
The Project co-ordinator was June Simpson.
A copy of each project was to be lodged at the Dannevirke Gallery of History, for research purposes.
It was hoped that projects would be on public display together, for a period of time.
