We were invited to contribute an article featuring the Friends of Te Papa to the Canadian Federation of Friends of Museum’s newsletter, Au Courant

They were interested in how the Friends of Te Papa had been engaging with volunteers and members during the pandemic, and also in the ways that the Friends of Te Papa engages with Indigenous communities and content through programming, exhibits, social media or other means. We were delighted to oblige, and can now share this the content with you.
