Who Cared? - Otago Nurses in WW1

Earlier this year I had the privilege of working on a collaborative project with staff at Otago Museum, Otago Polytechnic lecturers and Bachelor of Design (Communication) third year students on an exhibition based on my novel Lives We Leave Behind (Penguin Books, NZ, 2012; Editions Prisma, France, 2013).

This free exhibition runs from 26 September 2015 to 31 January 2016, 1877 Gallery, Otago Museum.

Publicity material extract: 
“Experience the realities of war with three nurses from Otago at the No. 1 New Zealand Stationary Hospital, Wisques, Northern France. Step inside their world, watch them at work, pick up and read their letters, touch their few possessions and discover their most private thoughts.”

Poetry Competition
We invite members of the public to write a poem of less than 200 words inspired by the exhibition Who Cared? Submit your entry before 11 January under one of these categories: Year 1 to Year 13 students or the Open Section.
