Following the success of the 2021 Otago History Hui and interest from network members, the Leadership Network will be holding an Otago History Hui in 2022. The hui will run from from 12 May to 15 May.
Note: The dates for this hui are under review and will be rescheduled.
Participants will visit sites of significance to the first Chinese to call the region home (in Dunedin and Arrowtown) and hear about the history of Chinese in the region from historians and members of the Chinese community.
By understanding the hardships and discrimination faced by Chinese living in the region members will reflect on how New Zealand has developed and be better placed to understand New Zealand’s place in the world and our future relationship with Asia.
