The Ministry of Cultural Development’s Historical Photographic Exhibition opening yesterday was such a big success that it will remain open longer today, to give more people the opportunity to see it.

 

Secretary of Culture Anthony Turua said the number of verbal comments he received from spectators in the first few hours of yesterday’s opening and the amazed expressions on people’s faces when they saw the photos, confirmed the value of the exhibition.

However, some people had told him they were unhappy they weren’t able to attend, because the timing of the two-day show clashed with their work obligations.

As a result, Turua says the exhibition will remain open until 7pm tonight  

Archives manager and organiser Paula Paniani says she is overwhelmed but not surprised at the amount of interest shown by the general public and particularly from Pa Enua residents.

“I am glad that a photo collection this big and valuable can be shared with the people of the Cook Islands and visitors.”

History such as this needs to exhibited in order for people to understand where we have come from to where we are today, she adds.

The exhibition is at the Ministry of Cultural Development’s National Museum, and is a must-see.

    Kia Orana. For those who wish to see the exhibition photos, please do pop around at the National Archives office. All photos displayed during the exhibition will be displayed on wall and ready for all to come in and browse again. Or if you have missed out the two days. This is your chance to come in and visit the Johnson's Studio collection. Digital will also be viewed by way of laptop and tv screen. Please contact myself or our Archives staff if you wish to book a team of 10 or more to view these photos. Meitaki maata CIs News Team.
