Te Papa Channel: which is your favourite?

Te Papa Channel is now live!

Te Papa Channel

Peek into wild landscapes. Hear Dame Suzie Moncrieff talk about the secrets behind the creative spectacle that is a World of WearableArt™ show. See Matariki performances from the stars of tomorrow.

Te Papa’s Channel, launched this week, brings you into the heart of Te Papa’s multimedia collection. Now you can go behind the scenes at the Museum, and experience the very best of our exhibitions and collections through amazing imagery, videos and audio.

Here are my three picks of the best multimedia highlights on the Channel so far. Do you agree? Have I left out your favourite? Let me know in the comments below!

Kingdom of the Birds: a glimpse into wild New Zealand

These beautiful images were taken by Michael Hall, one of Te Papa’s photographers, on the windswept and remote Solander Island in the Foveaux Strait. It’s a chance to see a location few of us will ever get to visit, but the slideshow is worth checking out for the close-up of an albatross alone: majestic.

Curling, The Roaring Game: jumpers, stones and ice

A strangely captivating piece of footage about a traditional sport few people play. Plus, as one of my colleagues says, the jumpers are outstanding.

Te Kahureremoa AKA LadyFruit performs at Matariki 2011

I love that Te Papa is a space where these performances can exist, and artists come from across New Zealand to tell their stories through song, music and art. Te Kahureremoa’s waiata is a beautiful, honest performance inspired by an important moment in her life.
