Advance notice : Workshop, Disaster Salvage

A workshop organised by the Canterbury Disaster Salvage Team will be taking place at Christchurch Art Gallery in mid June-ish on best practise in the event of a disaster (as identified by the hands on workshop we had last year).  It will be dealing with preventive issues, good storage, and display. We are hoping to get as many areas covered as possible.

Flyer to follow with finalised dates and other information in the near future.

Canterbury Disaster Salvage Team – newsletter, April 2016

Canterbury Disaster Salvage Team - logo 4.35am, Saturday 4 September 2010. It’s dark, the room and its contents are shaking. As the ground below starts to settle, rumbling begins in the distance followed by another jolt that sends the heartbeat racing. Looking back, we  can see that this earthquake was the beginning of a journey that the museum sector in Canterbury never expected  to encounter, one full of trials and tribulations as well as hope and camaraderie. In the aftermath of the February  2011 earthquake, the Air Force Museum of New Zealand found themselves in a position to be able to help those  institutions who had nowhere else to go.
