Our work is as diverse as the sector we support. We research New Zealand and provide rich online resources like Te Ara — the Encyclopedia of New Zealand. We produce books, advise government and look after New Zealand's national treasures. We tend to work behind the scenes, helping the people and organisations that contribute to making our culture thrive.
First World War Centenary Projects
The Ministry's Heritage Services Branch is developing a series of projects to commemorate the centenary of the First World War in 2014-19. The centenary programme will include a wide range of activities and events for New Zealanders to participate in – both at home and overseas.
