Canterbury and World War One: Lives Lost, Lives Changed: 1 December 2017 - 11 November 2018

The experiences of Cantabrians who served on the battlefields of Europe and the Middle East and those they left behind tell the story of Canterbury and World War One.

The Bristlecone Project: 6 November 2017 -  1 April 2018

One in six boys will be sexually abused before their 16th birthday. The Bristlecone Project exhibition celebrates the courage, determination and resilience of men from across New Zealand – and the world – who have suffered sexual abuse. These men tell their stories, openly and honestly. They are stories of suffering but also of triumph and hope.
