Whakapapa Research Workshop

It was an attentive group of people who gathered in Wanaka Two at the Dunedin Town Hall to hear Darin and Virginia present their workshop, describing the two year journey of intense research that culminated with the published book “Bernard Winton Johns – Five Decades of His Architecture”.

It was a privilege to have Kaumatua Edward Ellison formally  welcome and introduce Darin and Virginia to the audience before they started their presentation.

Many areas of the team’s journey were covered, such as the in-depth research in libraries, university archives and council records as well as online tips and tricks with various search engines and websites. Interviewing techniques,  budgets, overcoming road blocks and record keeping were amongst the topics covered. And some great questions were answered in the Q & A session that followed.
