NZ'S FIRST WORLD WAR CENTENARY 2014–2019

Farewell Zealandia: Forgotten Kiwi Songs of World War One exhibition

Farewell Zealandia: Forgotten Kiwi Music of World War One explores a selection of music written by New Zealanders from 1914 to 1918.

Farewell Zealandia: Forgotten Kiwi Music of World War One is an exhibition that explores the stories behind 20 songs written by New Zealanders between 1914 and 1918. Each song will be presented as a recording and include a personal story about the songwriter and why they wrote the song. Through the songs, a range of themes will be explored, from patriotism through to the sense of loss that prevailed at the end of the war.  

This exhibition will be available to museums, galleries and exhibition venues throughout New Zealand from July 2015. If you are interested in finding out more, please contact Tony Rasmussen, Curator: Social History at tony.rasmussen@temanawa.co.nz
