The Polish Community in Wellington, New Zealand, is a vibrant, social and culturally active community, that aims to share its rich Polish culture with the wider community and to pass on our culture to future generations. Our website provides you with an opportunity to learn something about our community as well as being a gateway to becoming involved in the Polish Community, either through The Polish Association in New Zealand, and/or other groups in the community.


Summary – 150th Anniversary Community Project

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.
