My name is Jo Walsh and I am the Pacific Diaspora Consultation Facilitator for the National Maritime Museum and their Pacific Encounters gallery, which will open as part of the Endeavour Project in 2018.
Over the next 6 months I will be working with the Museum and Pacific Diaspora Community to encourage and influence the voice, diversity and uniqueness of the Pacific within the collections.
This consultation process is the second stage of an on-going commitment by the Museum to understand the rights and interests of the Pacific people, protocols and culture.

If you identify as TAGATA PASIFIKA or TANGATA WHENUA and are interested in participating in consultations, or want to learn more about the collections, please contact Jo Walsh at firstname.lastname@example.org.
