National Services Te Paerangi's mission is to strengthen the museum sector by providing practical and strategic help to museums, galleries and iwi throughout Aotearoa New Zealand.
Our goal is for museums and iwi to be significantly strengthened by increased participation in our programmes and by working collaboratively at a local and national level.
National Services Te Paerangi has a core staff of seven. We are based in an office at Te Papa, and our three Development Officers travel around New Zealand assisting museums and iwi and feeding back to the team. Gavin is based in Fielding, Sally is based in Gisborne, and Judith is based in Nelson.
