Pacific Islands’ Exhibits 2016

I recently came across a list of Pacific Islands exhibitions that I would like to share, and are currently showing, or will be on display in the near future. Most of these exhibits are taking place in Australia or New Zealand. If you’re traveling down under, take a moment to add these to your itinerary. You won’t want to miss these unique exhibitions!

About islandculturearchivalsupport

Island Culture Archival Support (ICAS) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of records pertaining to the cultural identity of island peoples in Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia whose national and public archives, libraries, cultural centers, and business organizations are underprivileged, underfunded, and understaffed. The specific purpose for which this nonprofit corporation was formed is to support the needs of these South Pacific cultural heritage institutions by helping to preserve and make accessible records created for business, accountability or cultural purposes. The organization will endeavor to add value by providing resources or volunteers to advise, train, and work among island residents to support their efforts in building their future and preserving their collective memory through the use of modern archival techniques.
