City as School — He Tohu as a powerful learning environment for engaging with the iconic documents shaping Aotearoa New Zealand

He Tohu is a permanent exhibition of three iconic constitutional documents that shape Aotearoa New Zealand:

  • 1835 He Whakaputanga o te Rangatiratanga o Nu Tireni — Declaration of Independence of the United Tribes of New Zealand
  • 1840 Te Tiriti o Waitangi — Treaty of Waitangi
  • 1893 Women’s Suffrage Petition — Te Petihana Whakamana Pōti Wahine.

He Tohu provides on-site and online learning experiences and resources for young New Zealanders, focusing on the history of the documents and their ongoing significance to our national life.

This event will give you an opportunity to see this significant exhibition and hear about the approach to designing the learning environment and shaping the experience that young people have in the space itself.

Our speakers include He Tohu project manager Rob Stevens, and Learning Programmes Specialist, Kate Potter.
