About Tauhere | Connections

To read the current issue click here.

Tauhere | Connections was conceived by the Emerging Museum Professionals group as a way to address a gap in New Zealand’s museum publications offering – a professional journal for the museum sector that is not tied to the work of a single institution.

It is intended as a forum for early and mid-career GLAM sector professionals to publish their research, reviews and opinion pieces, and for emergent researchers and writers to build up their publishing credits.

The journal’s name, Tauhere | Connections, echoes the bicultural nature and practice of the museum sector in Aotearoa New Zealand. It also reflects an important aspect of developing a career in the museum sector – making connections, forging relationships, building networks, connecting with visitors to our museums and with each other.

We hope that Tauhere | Connections will provide another avenue for such links to be made.

We are dedicated to ensuring the continued relevance of this publication as an accessible platform from which museum professionals can share their insights into our sector.
