The week began with an opening ceremony for “Te Reo o Te Hauora, Te Hauora o Te Reo" at the Hocken Library. This foyer exhibition was developed in collaboration with Dr Anne-Marie Jackson from the School of Physical Education Sport and Exercise Sciences – Te Kura Para-Whakawai. Dr Jackson used the Hocken Library's poster collection to profile the history of Māori health promotion in Aotearoa using Māori health promotion posters from the 1950s through to more recent Māori health promotional campaigns.
