Aisa NZ Foundation Museums Awards announced

Asia New Zealand Foundation Museums Awards announced, December 2004

Two grants from funds available under the Asia New Zealand Foundation Museums Award programme have been made by Museums Aotearoa under its agreement with Asia NZ.

The Asia New Zealand Foundation Museums Award was established in 2000 to provide an incentive for New Zealand museums and museum professionals to develop projects with Asia.

The Award will support one or more projects each year that will have a significant impact nationally. Projects for consideration can include professional visits, exchanges, residencies, publications, workshops, specialist presentations or conferences. The amount available from Asia NZ each year is $18,000.

The following awards have been made from funds provided by Asia NZ for the 2004/05 financial year:

- $12,000 to the Dunedin Public Art Gallery towards the international visitor programmes component of the exhibition “Nihon Bi Takumi: the handcrafted Beauty of Japan—Japanese Treasures from Dunedin Collections” that will be part of the Japan Festival in Dunedin in September 2005. This will be a major exhibition of traditional Japanese art, drawing from the collections of the Art Gallery, the Otago Museum and Olveston, and also an important collection of prints from the Otaru Museum, Otaru, Japan.
- $6,000 to the Otago Museum for an exhibition of kimonos collected by the Otaru Museum that will also be part of the 2005 Japan Festival in Dunedin. It is likely that these kimonos will be donated to the Otago Museum as part of the sister city relationship between Otaru and Dunedin.
