Together with the Australian Government and National Library of Australia, the National Library of New Zealand Te Puna Mātauranga o Aotearoa is working with colleagues from across the Pacific to develop a shared online place that enables Pacific peoples to connect with their cultural heritage from around the world.

The Pacific Virtual Museum Pilot Programme will produce an online portal that provides an easy single access point to digitised Pacific cultural heritage items held in different museum, archive, and library collections around the region, similar to the DigitalNZ service (www.digitalnz.org). This first pilot phase runs until February 2022 and focuses on providing access to digitised Pacific heritage photographs.

We are looking for a talented person to work with Pasifika communities, researchers, educators and other key stakeholders to successfully co-design and deliver the Pacific Virtual Museum.

You ll ideally have experience working with Pacific, education, GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums) sector or government stakeholders. You will also be able to demonstrate your understanding of the issues associated with access to digital documentary heritage for Pacific people, and some knowledge of rights, licensing and copyright.

If you have strengths in communicating complicated concepts in plain language and in crafting content for a range of audiences we d love to hear from you!
