Kiwi Chicks: New Zealand Girl History help

Established 25 Jul 2012

Kiwi Chicks: New Zealand Girl History is a collections-driven exhibition project that explores girlhood in New Zealand during the 18th-20th centuries. Growing up as a NZ ‘girl’ was and continues to be a unique experience that should be explored and celebrated. The aim of the project is to inform and inspire the girls of today with the stories, achievements and struggles of yesterday's girls, as well as reaching a general audience.
