Participate in this new project to illuminate the lives of the women alluded to in these historical biographies. 

In this two-part workshop, Fiona Brooker, a professional genealogist for Memories in Time, will guide you through actively researching and writing their untold stories. 

Day 1: Friday 8 October 2021, 7pm to 9pm

On Friday night, enjoy tea, coffee or a non-alcoholic bubbly, meet the other workshop participants, and have the opportunity to explore Te Whare Waiutuutu Kate Sheppard House in the evening. Then learn about the Cyclopedia, get tips on researching women and hear about the new project being launched to find the "hidden women".  

Day 2: Saturday 9 October 2021, 10.15am to 12.15pm

On Saturday morning, meet at Tūranga and begin actively researching a woman from the Cyclopedia while developing your research skills using the library's resources and computers. The goal is to prepare and tell her story, which will be retained and stored in an accessible repository.

Price: $20 per person + booking fee

Tea, coffee, and alcohol-free bubbly on arrival on Friday evening.
