Celebrating 150 years of Polish Communities in 
Aotearoa New Zealand 

Community Project

 

2022 commemorates 150 years of Polish communities in Aotearoa New Zealand.  To celebrate this anniversary, the Polish Association in NZ Inc. invites our Polish community to contribute and share their stories about their Polish families in New Zealand today and in the past.  We have set up a project to collect memories and stories and will display them as part of an exhibition at the Polish Festival planned for Sunday 2nd October as a series of A3 sized posters. We would like families to participate whether your family arrived in New Zealand yesterday, last year or in any time in the past 150 years.

Celebrating 150 years of Polish Communities in 
Aotearoa New Zealand 

Community Project

 

2022 commemorates 150 years of Polish communities in Aotearoa New Zealand.  To celebrate this anniversary, the Polish Association in NZ Inc. would like to invite our Polish community to contribute and share their stories about their Polish families in New Zealand today and in the past.  We have set up a project to collect memories and stories and will display them as part of an exhibition at the Polish Festival planned for Sunday 2nd October as a series of A3 sized posters. We would like families to participate whether your family arrived in New Zealand yesterday, last year or in any time in the past 150 years.

There is no right or wrong way to present your story although we are providing a PowerPoint template with the 150th year logo in landscape format for you with a suggestion of fonts to use which will be readable in A3 format. We leave it up to you how you would like to present your information. We suggest a combination of text, artwork, photos and captions. If you would rather, you may print the template in A3 size and do a collage of photos, artwork and printed information.  It is entirely up to you.

The Title of your presentation should be the family name of your ancestor or family that came to New Zealand with the year of the first arrival. E.g “Piotuch/Smolnicki Family 1944”

To get you thinking we have put together a list of suggested topics in the downloadable PDF. These are just suggestions, it is your story and we leave it to you on how you choose to share.
