A single donation has the power of saving up to three lives, your donation could truly make a difference this Winter.

MAURICE AND I - official trailer 02/07/2024

It's cold and wet outside - great film weather! Get along to the extended season of "Maurice and I" - at the Deluxe or (soon) Lumiere Cinemas. It's a great Christchurch story featuring amazing 1980s footage of Ōtautahi, plus appearances by UC's College House and archives from Macmillan Brown Library. If you lived through quake-era Christchurch, it's a must-see.

Our latest article is called ‘Reindigenisation in the context of psychotherapy and counselling’ by Brent Tohiariki (Te Whānau-ā-Apanui; Te Arawa (Tapuika))

Happy May Day! May 1st is International Workers Day, celebrated in many countries with a day off.
We might still have to work in Aotearoa, but it's a good day to browse Macmillan Brown Library's archive of Canterbury trade unions and workplaces. We hold papers and photographs from a variety of local unions dating back to the 19th century, such as the Cook's and Bakers' and the Tailors' Unions, seen here. And photos of local workers, such as the typing pool of the Canterbury Frozen Meat Company and the iconic Edmonds' Baking Powder factory. For more, browse our Workers and Unions collection https://kohika.canterbury.ac.nz/
