Auckland City Libraries and the New Zealand Chinese Association Auckland Inc. have collaborated to develop the first New Zealand Chinese digital community website.
This new initiative is being launched at the Rising Dragons, Soaring Bananas International Conference on 18 July at 3.30pm and 19 July at 8.30am at the University of Auckland Business School.
The Chinese Community is full of rich, everyday stories which resonate with people from all walks of life. This is a landmark project which will ensure Chinese New Zealand stories are kept alive forever.
The Chinese Digital Community http://chinesecommunity.org.nz/ hopes to create connections within the Chinese community and assist with bridging the gap between generations of Chinese New Zealanders. Users of the website can upload family history, photographs, videos and stories about life in New Zealand.
A series of workshops are being held across Auckland to show people how to use the site and upload information. Click below for further information, and to book for these workshops
