Oral history learning opportunities

The workshops will be held at Kirkwood Village, Canterbury University.

The courses do cost a bit but you are spared the cost of travel to Wellington and accommodation. I’d really recommend these workshops for anyone interested in oral history. Other useful information can be found on the National Library website under Oral History Advice.
