To celebrate 75 years Otago Pioneer Women's Memorial Association
Janet de Wagt will stage an exhibition of her domestic
historical plastic collection.
We need your help to celebrate 75 years told through the
plastics that gave colour, joy and useful aid to pioneer women's
domestic lives. It is a significant time, and the story is a long
one that continues still. We need your help to keep these stories
Please help us to celebrate the women who played a significant
role in maintaining the building in the community. Help us
highlight and honour the historical importance of the memorial
This memorial building, dedicated to the pioneering women
settlers of Otago, is in recognition of their contribution to the
settlement of Otago province during the first century of its
existence. This building is a community centre used in the
interests of all people.
This exhibition will showcase these historical stories,
highlight the advantage that plastic holds, and change the way in
which people will treat plastic in the future. Plastic once held
magical and mystical associations, and through this fantastic
exhibition, we will bring back this association.
People will recognise the significance that plastic held in the
daily domestic lives of pioneer women, and they will consider
plastic with awe and with gratitude. It will remind people of the
rich material that plastic is and recognise the practical privilege
it has in our lives today. By understanding the past, we create a
future that will sustain us all.
Help us to influence the future by donating to the costs
associated with the installation and promotion of this historical
