The commemorative period in New Zealand has done much to raise awareness and knowledge of the reality of World War One’s horrors.
However, the emphasis on Gallipoli and its nation-building rhetoric has meant that the Western Front campaigns have been somewhat overshadowed.
What can we do to redress this balance? National Army Museum Director Tracy Puklowski will address this and other issues as she talks about the museum’s role and its future plans.
Tracy Puklowski has held senior leadership positions in a range of museums and cultural heritage organisations throughout New Zealand, including the National Army Museum, Te Papa, and the National Library of New Zealand. Tracy believes that museums play an integral role in delivering wider social benefits to and for their communities. Under her leadership, the National Army Museum is transforming its services to the public as well as its national and regional role.
