Historian needed for proposed historic trail

North West Country (formerly the North West District Business Association) is preparing an historic trail that will eventually run from Kaukapakapa to Riverhead, north of Auckland.

The organisation is looking for an historian to collate and format oral history and photographs for the trail. The intention is to upload the material gathered to the My Tours app and to also provide it through information plinths installed throughout the area. It is anticipated that initially around 15-20 plinths/stories would be produced. 

This work would involve contacting people who may possess historic information or records or can draw on past experiences within the local community, including mana whenua, Ngati Whatua o Kaipara, and members of the Dalmatian community.

North West Country will invest some money in this but it needs to apply for grants to assist with the completion of the work so it will need a quote to finalise a budget and seek funding.
