A nice webpage on the Wahine disaster by Stuff.co.nz
On April 10, 1968, the Wahine foundered in Wellington Harbour in a vicious storm, claiming 53 lives. It was a day of tragedy, and of everyday heroism. From strangers came comfort, hot soup and survival.

In week 2 (March 7-11) we have a fabulous International Photobook Festival happening at Te Papa and Massey.
photobooknz.com Under the ‘exhibition’ tab you will see an exhibition of Japanese photobooks at the Engine Room. From Wednesday 7th to Sunday 11th March we have three international photobook artists doing a live performance of book making in the gallery. This may be a really great opportunity for design students to engage with some very cool contemporary book makers.
The show continues to run from 12 to 16 March
